This is a wonderful and Large Pair of carved wood and Polychrome painted Wall Sconces. Blackamoor seated figures under the shade of a well carved Palm Tree, while playing a Horn or Flute (in the manner of a Snake Charmer!!), all in a very rich Green & Gilt polychrome paint.
The bottom portion of the sconces consists of carved & draped tassles in a rich green & gilt polychroming, and the Metal arms with a Leaf decor have a handsome patinated Gilt finish.
They were most likely created in Italy during the 1920-40's time frame....the Gilt Metal Arms are 2 Lite each, and the size of each sconce is approx. 31"tall x 12"wide. They retain the old European wiring and will need to be updated to US Standards, which is relatively easy.
This unique Pair of Wall Sconces are in a very impressive size, and are in Excellent condition and of the finest quality...they will require a large cartong for shipping and approx. 20lbs total. The price is for the Pair....
