Pair of louis XV sconces

Illustration of what rocaille art was, these two-armed appliques are wrapped around a series of volutes composed of acanthus leaves. The plant world was the basis of the inspiration of the rocaille which allowed the artists to use the palms and the acanthes in asymmetrical compositions more or less exaggerated and jagged.
The binets and bobeches of these fully openwork and spiral appliques are the perfect illustration of this bronze art of the Rocailleperiod.
