Pair of gilt bronze Baroque style wall appliques
French, late 19th Century
Height 68cm, width 39cm, depth 17cm
The appliques in this superb pair of works are wrought from gilt bronze in the Baroque style and feature mirrors and lights. Each piece features a cartouche shaped frame, richly moulded with a host of Baroque style detailing, including putti, acanthus leaves, and scrolling forms. Each applique is centred with a similarly shaped mirror, and each is adorned below with twin gilt bronze light branches, with each branch modelled in an ornately scrolling and foliate manner.
The gilding, in exceptional unblemished condition, have a magnificent radiance, and when lit by candles or otherwise in the two mounts below the glass frame glow with a beautiful flickering light, making them wonderful interior additions for those looking for some Baroque grandeur and style.
