An interesting pair of brass repoussé sconces created as round dishes with domed centers and eight-sided, stepped decoration.

The center of each has a crowned shield, one with a cross (Swiss?) and a diagonal banner surrounded with laurel leaves, the other with a small cross at the top, a fish suspended vertically, and - again - laurel leaves in the surround.

The next level is undecorated brass giving it a deep, dish effect. The two outer levels alternate different designs of fruit, flowers, serpents, a pebble effect, and gadrooning.

Each sconce is suspended from a hanging wire, and the candle cup and drip pan are removable from the arm for polishing.

The arms are hollow to allow for electrification, if desired.

Dutch or Swiss, late 19th or early 20th century

Dimensions: 8" in diameter; the candle arms extend to 6".

Price: $ 125
