Pair of Carved Acanthus Leaf Sconces with Polychrome Painting, Tuscany, 1930’s
A pair of decorative Italian Acanthus leaf carved three-armed wall lights, polychrome painted with shaded blue, pink and ocher, really very delicate colors and silvered traces in the lower pearling center . Three-light wall sconces with curved iron arms ending with E14 candle bulbs. Coming from Tuscany, from a private Rustico near Florence, they date back to early decades of 20th century. They are very decorative, with a deep carving, nice original patination and lovely proportions. Good age related condition, minor painting losses and a distressed, shaded finish. Italian working wiring. The verso has a Siena yellow painting. For a safe shipping they will be packed within a wooden crate.
