This magnificent and Important pair of baroque sconces, in silvery wood, was made in Northern Italy in the seventeenth century.
The decoration presents scrolls, fruits and acanthus flowers rolled up creating movement in the composition. The candle stick, allowing to plug the candle and diffuse the light, is original. A wall light is a lighting device fixed on a wall, as opposed to a candle holder.
The baroque style appeared in Italy in the 16th century before spreading throughout Europe. The term, attributed later to this stylistic trend by art historians, comes from the Portuguese "barocco" and refers to a stone of irregular shape.
Baroque, which affects different fields such as painting, decoration, sculpture, literature and architecture, is characterized by exaggerated movement, decorative overload, dramatic effects, tension, and exuberance of form.
These elements come from a private collection in a palace in Genoa.
