Sorry, this item has sold.

A lovely pair of old French gilt metal wall lights.
These wall lights are classical in design with a flat cast metal back plate having incised detail echoing the outline shape. There are cut sheet brass flower petal shape cups serving as the bulb holder platforms.
Each wall light has a branch for the bulb formed from C scrolls of cast metal tube with square profile.
Each light is hung with loops of brass tube or heavy guage wire forming branches or stems decorated with cut glass drops to reflect the light. These glass pieces are called lustres. Each has a glass flower bead at the head of the droplet.
The top of each back plate is adorned with loops of brass tube forming adjustable hooks from which further droplets hang.
The light fitting on each is covered by a mock candle sleeve with wax drips, these are made of painted wood, slightly tatty but replacements can be bought at homeware stores and online if you prefer. The finish of these light fittings is antique gilt colour. They are cast brass metal with a gilt colour finish.
These lights are from the Twentieth Century.
Size approx height 32cm, width 17cm, depth 18cm. Our French lighting is measured by the ornate metal pieces and does not include the bulb or lustres.
As with all vintage and antique lighting, these should be wired and installed by a qualified electrician.

We are able to post out parcels from Metropolitan France and shipping fees are shown, the customer is responsible for any import duties incurred for an item. Please allow plenty of transit time, as European post is notoriously slow! Please also note that deliveries within France are made to a Pont Relais collection point, there are usually a number of these located in shops and supermarkets in each town, and you will be given the opportunity to specify which one you prefer. Deliveries to other European destinations are generally to your doorstep.
Our items are carefully selected antique and vintage pieces from France and they show the character and charm of years of use. We do not sell new or reproduction items so you can expect to find signs of the age and life that the piece has led. We believe this history adds to the story of an item. Obvious damage and faults will always be mentioned in our descriptions but minor age-related condition issues are not considered a detriment.
