Seller: mrtopstuff1 (577) 100%, Location: Spokane, Washington, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 252649590760 Description and Condition: Here is a marvelous French bronze wall sconce that has somehow survived 150 to 200 years in excellent condition. It has a lovely soft gold-brown patina evenly distributed over the entire piece as shown in the photos. And it's never been electrified (although this could be very easily done.) The sconce is signed on the back with the molded initials V B. I could not find the foundry associated with this mark; it probably dates to the period ca. 1790-1850. This sconce is very well cast with good detail and excellent proportions. It measures 14 inches top to bottom and 12 inches wide between the two outer candle cups. The backplate to which the arms are attached is 8 inches at the widest. The sconce weighs about 3.5 pounds. It has a portrait of Louis XVI. I looked this sconce over and really could not find any issues. It's possible that there was originally some gilding, however the very even, rich patina suggests the bronze may have been chemically treated when made to achieve the brown-gold color that exists today.
