Vintage Pair of Contemporary Italian Giltwood Girandoles/sconces
Rather stunning vintage pair of contemporary Italian Giltwood Girandoles/sconces
2 electric lights on each sconce, with a beautiful mirror behind.
As you can see they have been used before, but the wiring would need to be checked, to ensure they conform to
current safety regulations.
In lovely condition, but please do study the photographs.
height : 16 ”
width : 9 3/4 ”
I also have a single Girandole sconce for sale . ( in total i have 9)
will be sent out by 2nd class post, signed for, and carefully wrapped in tissue paper, and bubble wrap.
Elaborate wall bracket incorporating one or more candleholders/light fittings,
and frequently a mirror to reflect the light, an object of luxury.
Embellished with carving and building.
Although the name is Italian in origin, girandoles reached the greatest heights of fashion in the second half of the 18th century.
At the beginning of this period they represented the most exuberant expression of the Rococo.
