Pair of Ornate Antique Cast Bronze Wall Sconces / Candle Holders with Bird Motif

$1,395per set

About

This pair of very ornately cast bronze wall sconces are unsigned but presumed to have been made in Europe, likely France or possibly Austria, in approximately 1880 in the period Victorian style. These wall lights are based on a figural arrow with a bow and intertwined wreaths on the top and featuring a pair of figural bound grotesque birds or ostriches in the center with highly decorative arms and cups and finishes with the arrow's head. These bronze sconces were originally electrified which has long since been removed, but they can function as candleholders in their present condition.
