Fabulous Solid Wood Carved Matched set of vintage Italian gilded wood sconces/wall shelves. This ornately decorated trio consists of a large sconce/wall shelf and two smaller pieces.
The body of the largest sconce/wall shelf features two delicate scrolls studded with floral accents. The scrolls meet at the base of the piece, terminating in a leaf-shaped point. The shelf portion at the top has a scalloped edge which is cut on an angle, providing a sense of depth and proportion. The other two pieces also have a scroll and leaf design along with scalloped tops, the edges of which are cut with slightly canted edges.
The large sconce measures 9.5" in height and is 10.25" across at its widest point, and has two small metal hooks present at the top of the piece used to affix the sconce to its display surface. The shelf itself projects 6" from the wall while the body projects approximately .75". The item is in excellent vintage condition and is free of chips, cracks or repairs. The gilding is worn in places, giving the piece a great vintage vibe. There is also an oval shaped display shadow on the surface of the shelf which is not visible unless the piece is hung below eye level. As seen in photo five, the back of the sconce has a small paper label present which states "MADE IN ITALY". There is also another small paper label but it is illegible.
The two smaller sconces are 4.5" in height and just under 5" across at their widest points, and have one small metal hook present at the top of each piece to affix the sconces to their display surface. The shelves project 3.25" from the wall, while the decorative bodies of the pieces project approximately .75". Both items are in excellent vintage condition and are free of chips, cracks or repairs. The finish on these pieces is pleasingly worn due to age and use.
These gorgeous vintage pieces ooze decorative appeal and are sure to be a focal point, whether you are a fan of shabby chic or more traditional decor. No matter your surroundings, consider adding a touch of bella Italia to your home with these rare and beautiful sconces!
