A pair of antique Italian single arm wooden sconces circa 1870 each having its original painted finish. The shape of each sconce is distinctive as it is in the form of a shield with a flared scroll at the top. along with a large tassel at the base. Please note that each arm also has a carved and painted wooden tassel suspended from an iron ring. The colour of these sconces is the gorgeous Umbrian ochre highlighted with a deep green and Bordeaux red. Originally these were used in candles but they retain the European wiring that may be changed to American wiring or totally removed to return them to their candle burning ability.
