I am delighted to offer for sale a fantastic rare pair of French gothic wall piano sconces, difficult to estimate an exact age, possible early 1900`s, or earlier and fabricated in Bronze Brass mix with a rigid backplate, with a fabulous antique patina, there is a makers mark L pinet cast into the arms and back plates.
These would have been fixed onto the sides of a piano or organ with candles lit to aid the players light, they can be adjusted easily by opening or closing the arms to suit.
The castings and back plates are excellent quality and finely decorated with lots of detail,dragons gargoyle gothic style etc, there are also small holes in the drip trays and back plate so they could be wired to fit bulbs.
Check out the many photo`s they describe these fab fittings much better than I ever can
Good and solid, tiny amounts of paint in places and on the pivots attached to the back plates but could be easily cleaned off if it bothered you
patina of each fitting ever so slightly different, probably from sunshine again nothing major but prefer to mention,.And a small split in one of the drip trays, again difficult to see when hung but would rather mention yet again.also maybe you would like to clean them up but i think they look so good as they are, just my opinion though! So nothing that would cause any problems but I want you to be happy so check out the photos on zoom as they form part of the description.
