A pair of French Rococo period carved giltwood two-light sconces from the mid 18th century, with scrolling arms and acanthus leaf motifs. Born in France during the reign of King Louis XV, each of this pair of giltwood sconces features a carved backplate, connected to two scrolling arms accented with acanthus leaves and supporting flower-shaped bobèches and their candle sleeves. Boasting a lovely patina, this pair of French Rococo sconces circa 1760 will bring an undeniable touch of refinement to any living room, hallway or bedroom, perhaps hung above a pair of demi-lunes or commodes.
