Offered here is a stunningly designed gold gild, Italian Wall Sconce; it is beautifully hand carved wood with 3 crafted metal candleholders. These have recently been professionally replaced and wired with molded candles, NEW PICTURE COMING. The sconce is basket shaped with assorted fruits, vegetables and nuts. There are stalks and grape leaves throughout; some vines and leaves are wired on. When attached to the wall the basket has been designed to appear as if it is hanging by a knotted ribbon at top(this "ribbon" is a part of the actual hand carved piece and not a fabric ribbon). The plaque/sconce is approx. 23 1/4 inches high by 17 inches wide. The group of 3 branches/candle holders each have a different fruit attached; pear, cherry, and apple. Each flower petal shaped candle holder has an opening of 11/8 inch to hold the candle. These have now been replaced and have actual wired candles that you can insert light bulbs. This has been a lovely improvement to this piece. Use soft 25 Watt(or less), flame bulbs for effect. There is some minor chipping of gold, but overall the sconce is in very good to excellent condition and quite beautiful. The pictures show bulbs and a wired pig tailed plug,(for lighting demo). These items are not included. Sales tax must be collected for buyers living in or picking up in New York State. Local tax rate applies.
