I simply adore this sconce. It is exquisite in every way. Italian gold hand carved giltwood and gesso in that lustrous warm hue that adds a certain je ne sais quoi (or whatever the Italian equivalent is) to any interior. Paris Apartment for certain! This beauty measures 23" in length and 9 1/2" wide where the candle holders are. It is done in a Florentine Rococco foliate type motif that is mostly gesso over wood. The two arms are metal with a metal leaf detail. The back retains its original paper stamp with a number in pencil and Made in Italy. It is also stamped Made in Italy. This hails from a prominent estate here in Oregon and I would date this to the 1930's-1940's. Another website refers to one similar with the same label as 19th century? I have seen pairs of these in the several thousands of dollars.. Condition is beautiful considering the age. You will not be disappointed.
