Description
FLORENCE, FIN DU XIXe SIÈCLE
PAIR OF "LIONS" SCONCELS Neo-Renaissance
style, circa 1880
Silver-plated bronze
H. 51 cm, W. 43 cm
This pair of silver-plated bronze sconces is composed of a plate with scrolled shapes decorated with a lion protote and five light arms whose bobèches and binets are decorated with fleurons. The ensemble is topped by a fleur-de-lys, symbol of the city of Florence. Taking up the cut leather pattern so dear to the late Renaissance, this pair of sconces reflects the 19th century's interest in historicism and all the neo movements.
