French Empire Style Bronze Ormolu Torchiere Sconce
This is a handsome Neo-Classical, Empire style bronze ormolu gold gilt torchiere sconce C. 1920. It has been recently re-wired and is in good working order. It has the original switch that works!
The torchieres form a "V" for victory and are mounted by a gilt bronze laurel wreath.
There is one chip on the lip of one glass torchiere shade (see photo). It does not affect the stability of the glass when it is screwed into the torchiere's base. The other shades are in good condition with just a few minor flakes that you can see in the photos.
Dimensions: 20" H x 14" W
Condition: Very good, recently rewired. Consistent with age and wear.
