This is a pair of ornate art nouveau wall sconces from the Victorian era. They are heavy, ornate brass, with frosted glass globes, and clear glass chimneys. The brass features scrolling floral and shell-like designs. Each sconce has 2 semi-nude female figures.They have wings, but also scrolling, mermaid-like tails. These pieces are architectural salvage.
They are beautiful, but will need some TLC. Each sconce has a wall plate that measures approximately 9" tall and 5.5" wide.The lamps are approximately 26 tall in total, from the bottom of the wall plate, to the top of the chimney. The frosted glass globes are approximately 7.5" in diameter, and 7" tall. This pair of wall sconces are in antique, architectural salvage condition.
They are Victorian era, with art nouveau styling, and are very heavy, very ornate brass. They are architectural salvage pieces, and have not been cleaned or changed, or fooled with in any way. We just wiped the dust off. They are heavily patinated with moderate to heavy green and white corrosion. The nut and bolt that holds the wall plate and the lamp together on each piece is heavily rusted.
The kerosene lamps have not been converted to electric, but I don't believe they are in condition to be used as they are. The burners themselves are Duplex, Made in England. We are not sure if the frosted glass globes are original to the pieces or not.
One of the clear glass chimneys is definitely a replacement, marked made in USA by Pyrex, for Aladdin. The other chimney is unmarked. All glass is in good condition, with no cracks. There are a few small chips around the bottom rim of each globe. We have shown the worst of the chips in our photos.
