Works of art from the 17th to the 19th century
This pair of very high quality wall lights is identical to an apocryphal model made around 1770, and is similar to a Pitoin model made for the Martyr Queen.
A wide ribbon tied to a nail bears vines in the lower part and lily buttons (?) under the rosette. The two fluted arms are seized by a knot; they are dressed in foliage and carry a vase vase and a large counter cup, all fluted and surrounded by pearls.
These sconces bear the hallmark of the Colin house, which was a great bronzier of the second half of the 19th century. Their narrowness without these lights being small also makes it possible to use them on either side of a mirror, in fact, they are in the model of wall sconces.
We are very close to the work of the 18th century.
Excellent condition, beautiful luminous gilding. We were electrified but without the usual drilling, so invisible, and easy to reinstall.
Platinum height: 57 cm x 10 cm (at the knot, otherwise 8 cm). Wingspan: 26 cm, overhang: 20 cm.
