Pair of French Neoclassical Cast Brass 3-Light Wall Sconces.  Luminaire bracket shaped shaft with horizontal ribbed design issuing three s-shaped branches cascading foliage sprouting a detailed bobache and candle holder, crowned with a Louis XVI style flaming fluted urn and terminating at the base with a stylized flower and bud finial. Originally for candles, converted to electric. 

 

Neoclassical design was inspired by the discovery of ancient Pompeii, returning Greco-Roman style in furniture and architecture. Louis XVI's reign began in 1774, his queen Marie-Antoinette was a lover of the arts and had much influence over the style. This 18th century design is timeless and elegant, but understated; it will compliment an antique setting, or adds exuberant contrasting highlights to modern and contemporary interior settings.
