An exceptional carved wood wall sconce dating from 1790 - 1810. In the Directoire taste - the back plate is a quiver with feather tipped arrows. The gilding is high quality and sections are painted to approximate patinated bronze. Measures 15" tall x 11" across the candle arms and 6 1/2" off the wall. Very good condition - a few minor areas of loss consistent with age.
