Antique French cast bronze d'or ormolu metal rococo style electric wall candelabra lights


Shipping to United States: $55.32

A pair of heavy cast metal candelabra wall lights in Rococo style.
The candelabras have a decorative back plate in the shape of entwined foliage, with two branches coming from it. The form is of typically classical rococo motifs, swags of leaves twisting and scrolling along stems. These branches have naturalistic foliate saucers forming the platform for the light fittings. On the saucer sits a small cup in urn shape, with cast detail of leaves and ribbed or fluted columns.
These light fittings have a gilt finish, this is typically called bronze d'or (gilded bronze) or ormolu. The colour is not bright gold, but a pleasing patinated old finish or antique gold colour.
The lights are vintage from the Twentieth century, in Rococo style of the Eighteenth century. Price is for a pair, two wall lights, each of which has two light fittings.
Size approx height of back plate 26cm, width of back plate 5cm, depth 10cm out from wall, width across arms at saucers 27cm. Saucer diameter 7cm.
The faux wax candle sleeves hiding the electrical fittings are worn and tatty, it is possible to get replacements for these online if you prefer.
As with all vintage and antique light fittings, they should be checked and if necessary rewired by a qualified electrician before use. Installation should also be carried out by a qualified professional.

We are able to post out parcels from Metropolitan France and shipping fees are shown. Please allow plenty of transit time, as European post is notoriously slow!

*Please note that most deliveries within France and some other European Union countries are usually 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 if this service is available for your location. Otherwise I will select the shop with the longest opening hours within your area. If you would prefer La Poste domestic delivery PLEASE ASK for a quote.
Deliveries to most other European destinations are generally to your doorstep unless it is much cheaper to use Pont Relais.
Outside of Europe we use La Poste International parcel service.
The sales tax is included in any sales so there should be nothing extra due to pay when your parcel arrives, subject to customs clearance. *The customer is responsible for any import duties incurred for an item. We will require a PHONE NUMBER to add to the customs forms, to help prevent any delays or transit problems. If you refuse delivery of an item due to customs costs, please be aware that your parcel's postage costs will be forfeit, although we are happy to refund the item purchase price upon return.

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.
