Rare pair of gilt bronze sconces with a sconce.
The plates ending in seed bases, simulate sheaths decorated with crossed quivers and torches which support busts of emperors and empresses wearing laurel wreaths, against a background of acanthus leaves.
The nervously treated sconces support gadrooned cups and bobeches adorned with palmettes.
Very good state of conservation (formerly drilled for electrification)
