The sconces in this set of five are crafted from gilt bronze in a distinctive Neoclassical style. Each sconce features two curved branches, each branch set below with a decorative scrolled foliate spray. The branches of each spring from a wonderfully ornate backplate: the top of the backplate features a cherub blowing twin horns, while the lower section is cast with rich foliate detailing, terminating at the bottom with lightly twisting ribbons.
