A handsome pair of brass wall sconces, each with three flowing arms extending from a central shaft and held in place with beautiful brass pins.

Found on a rainy morning in Amsterdam’s Noordermarkt.

One of the two shafts has been repaired; the repair is inside the shaft and invisible when the sconce is mounted on the wall.

Dutch, late 18th century

Height: 16”; diameter of ball: 4-1/4”
