Here is a great set of Vintage Electrified Wall Sconces for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift, for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself!
You do not come across a set of beautiful set of sconces like this very often. The sconces are made of bronze, a pink marble and then a carved soapstone bottom. You just do not find such beautiful architectural pieces like these very often anymore, especially ones that match and were meant to complement each other. The carvings on the soap stone section of each sconce is very nicely done and the pieces to both sconces are still there. We would guess the pair of wall sconces date to the early 1900s period.
We do not see any makers mark or country of origination noted on either piece. On the top of each sconce is a bronze topper. Has acorn finials that hang down and then an embossed ram horn design around the entire front and sides of the bronze piece. There is also a bronze finial at the base of each piece.
The center part of each sconce is pink and white marble. Carved on the outside to look like panels, when really one piece of marble. Then the bottom piece of each sconce is what appears to be a carved soapstone. The bronze frames to attach the sconces to the wall are in place. An electrical socket is attached to each of the frames.
Some condition issues. The one sconce is in great condition. Just some minor chipping and surface wear. The second sconce had a mishap sometime in the past. See pic 9 (the sconce on the left) and pic 10 to see what we are conveying here. Can see where the soapstone section on one side was cracked and put back together. Can also see on the inside where the pink marble was damaged and put back together. Can see where put back together on the inside clearly, but the repair was done well and barely shows when backlit from inside.
Each Bronze, Marble and Soapstone Wall Sconce is 16.25" tall, by 13-5/8" across, by 7-13/16" wide. The sconces are large and heavy, so expect the packing/shipping cost to reflect that.
