This is a very old GORGEOUS PAIR of Hard-to-Find Fine French Porcelain Rose & Various Flowers Gilt Metal Wall sconces. Im not sure of their age, but they are very old.As you can see from photos, they do work, but the wiring is extremely old and I would recommend rewiring for safety if you plan to use them - but they are even beautiful on the wall just for display, even when NOT lit up. I only had one plug-in wire so I could only hook up one at a time. I had to wire the left alone, then the right in separate photos, but they both do work. The various porcelain roses & flowers are simply amazing!
Lots of different colors and different types of flowers. A beautiful pastel color palette!
Some may have minor chips as is common with items of this age, nothing to detract. There are fancy bows and ribbons and its as though the flower stems are gathered at the bottom like a bouquet.
There are many very detailed tiny metal leaves throughout. I cant begin to go into enough detail and I wish I could post more than 12 photos so you can appreciate them in their full glory! The metal has tarnished and discolored in some areas. Right in the middle of the backplate above the mounting point, on each piece there was a "hole"? That at some time someone filled in with what looks to be some welding metal or something?
It's not so visible from the front when on the wall because the foliage mostly covers it. They have always been this way, came this way when I bought them. Never bothered me but mentioning for full disclosure. There is a bar across the back for hanging. The candle socket covers are old and chippy.I personally prefer this time-worn aged look of "character", you may wish to change out. Takes regular US candelabra bulbs not included. Each are stamped on the backplate "MADE IN FRANCE" under the wiring.
Also have marks above the backplate on a ribbon and on the very tip of the flower stems at bottom. Both areas have the same stamps but I cant necessarily make them out, but appear to be a maker (or "FRANCE") and a cast # perhaps? I tried to show one in last photo..... And if you ZOOM you can see on the pics of the full back photos. Measure approx 13" Tall (wthout bulb) x 10" Wide at farthest points and extends out approx 5 Deep from wall.
Photos are considered part of the description. Please be sure to use ZOOM function. Always wrapped w lots of bubble wrap & packaged with great care to ensure your item arrives safely. Thanks for viewing and have a lovely day!
