A lovely pair of Piano Candle Sconces fashioned in solid brass...the design is tending more towards ARTS & CRAFTS with a hint of Art Nouveau coming into the design. The sconces are in very nice condition...there are no makers marks as was quite common with these items.Each one is 8 1/2" in length. The ARTS & CRAFTS MOVEMENT commenced around 1860 and became very strong in the late 1800's through to around 1900. In the United Kingdom Art Nouveau developed out of the Arts and Crafts Movement during the 1880's so I'd place these sconces as around 1890-1900 as they show signs of both movements.
