A PAIR OF ITALIAN 1940s GILT TOLE SCONCES – RIBBON TIED LEAFY BRANCHES
A pair of Italian 1940s gilt tole ‘ribbon tied leafy branch’ sconces, naturalistically designed as serpentine leafy stems tied with generous ribbon bows, the foliage with detailed venation and the gilt well patinated. Original metal tags ‘made in Italy’ present, the single candle holders of pretty scalloped form with integral hook for easy hanging. In overall good condition commensurate with age – may have originally had porcelain flower heads attached as there are two stems which are not visible as concealed behind leaves – which now look obsolete – but not detracting in our opinion. An elegant and sought after foliate design. Stunning on the wall. Can be wired and PAT tested. Please enquire.
