Beautiful and Elegant Pair of Italian Solid Brass 'Orgue' Appliques, circa 1955

US$7,000per set


Beautiful and elegant pair of original, solid brass (not plated), italian 'orgue' appliques, circa 1955. Each sconce features three uplighters and two downlighters, each lamp completely concealed within the sculptural tubular elements, there is no downlighter in the central tubular element of each sconce, this is an original feature and as you can see creates a beautiful optical effect when illuminated. We have left the appliques in their original state as found in Italy with surface patination to the brass, being solid brass these marks can be polished out to leave a high luster finish should the buyer require that. Please be aware that the visible marks on the brass surface are just surface patination NOT damage.We prefer to keep the original surface patina on the brass prior to selling because there are so many fakes in the italian lighting market these days that we like to keep as much visible proof of originality where possible so our clients can buy with complete confidence. We have also kept the original hardware and electrics, the original brass and ceramic bulb holders are still installed as is the original wiring. Please note one of the ten original brass bulb holders has been replaced. We can have both sconces rewired for our clients. Again we have decided to keep all these original features as proof of originality. A rare and beautiful set.
