Bronze Nude Sconce with Gilded Flowers, Buds, and Leaves
A classic bronze nude forms the base of this most unusual candle sconce. A beautiful and accomplished sculpture on its own, this lovely woman leans forward peeking to her right, making room for an opulent riot of blooms to sprout from behind... flowers, buds, and leaves, some decorative and some turning their faces up, creating candle holders. Fantastic.
In these days of spiral fluorescent bulbs and electric everything there's something romantic and old fashioned about the glow of candlelight dancing and flickering. Can't you just imagine candlelight playing on this extravagant gilded floral display, reflecting off the voluptuous bronze curves below?
CONDITION is beautiful with age appropriate wear and patina, please look at the pictures. Measures 20 1/2" east to west, and 19" tall overall. The bronze nude measures 8 1/2" tall, and the sconce projects 10" out from the wall. The mounting holes are 2 3/4" center to center. This sconce is substantial and weighs almost 19 pounds!
If you've got a spot for this, don't hesitate... I don't know when or where you'll ever see another. Enjoy!
