19th Century Pair of French Two-light Gilt Bronze and Rock Crystal Sconces by Maison Baguès
This pair of two-light wall lamps was made, in chiselled and gilded bronze, in the second half of the nineteenth century in France.Stylistically they are attributable to the famous Maison Baguès manufactory and are inspired by the eighteenth-century models that the famous engravers proposed to the King of France Louis XV. The wall lamps are characterized by the audacity and exuberance of the forms.From the central element depart two asymmetrical arms decorated with phytomorphic elements and applications in rock crystal with floral motifs.At the center of each wall lamp is a golden bronze bird that gives a particular decorative accent to the set.
The world-famous Parisian company Maison Baguès has created lighting and furniture works famous all over the world and is now recognized as synonymous with elegance and refinement.Baguès was born in Auvergne around 1840 and was mirrored in bronze works.The society developed considerably at the end of the nineteenth century, with the advent of electricity, with objects for lighting.
