Antique Carved Wall Shelf Sconces, Antique English Pine Shelf Sconces:
Antique Carved Wall Sconces/Antique English Pine Shelf Sconces
18th Century, English, Pine
Provenance: I purchased these in the 1990's from Neal Johnson Ltd, an importer/dealer whose company is listed online should you care to research. I kept the original price tags in my files, and re-attached for the new owner's provenance.
Measurements and Description
Both measure ~7.5" tall, ~5"wide (carving), and ~3" deep(carving). The Shelf part measures ~8" wide, 4.5" deep. The metal hanging hardware appears to be vintage and is firmly attached but jiggles just a slight bit. The hooks (see photos), are circles that measure ~ .75" in diameter. Each weighs ~11oz. Please view the photos in detail as they are integral to the listing and part of the description. These are in the same condition as when I purchased, and I recently sold my home and am still downsizing decades of treasures. The scroll carvings are 18th century pine (English). I am guessing the dealer had the shelf part made of vintage pine and that was later added. Not sure. Neal Johnson is a high end importer/dealer who purchases European antiques and architectural items, and will often have them made into lamps, objet d'art, etc. The overall condition is very good, the carvings have some very subtle areas where it appears a clear wood glue was used to fill the intricate carvings for added support. They are very handsome and warm. The patina is lovely.Sconces have been tripled wrapped in bubble wrap, and well secured for safe shipment. Item will be shipped insured. I generally ship every 2-3 business days. However if you need these shipped quickly, please inquire in advance of purchase, and I am glad to do so, if I am in town.
