About this item

Pair of Bronze sconces attributed to Andre Arbus for Veronese (up to 6 available), 1940`s ca, French.

This set of wall lights have been thoroughly cleaned respecting the original patina. They are newly rewired, in full working order and ready to install. Light bulbs included.

They sell as separate pairs or all 6 together. This price is for a pair. Please contact Vinterior if you would like to place an order for more than one pair.

These 6 bronze wall lights attributed to Andre Arbus are unique with their undulating metal work and Modernist shapes. Each is finished with 12 elegant crystals which add to this sense of movement. These wall lights would be well suited for a range of interiors such as Art Deco, 1950`s, Hollywood Regency or Contemporary.

Structurally each wall light consists of 6 arms of swirling metal work with a unique almost ` whiplash curves` characteristic of the designs by Andre Arbus . Each arm is finished at both ends with a dangling high quality hand polished faceted crystal in caramel/gold colour. There is a total of 12 crystals on each sconce. The shape & colour of these crystals emphasize the shape of the metal work and elegantly finish to a point.

Depth is created on each wall light with 3 long arms emerging from the back plate and then 3 shorter arms emerging slightly more distally.

There is a light suspended on each short arm for a total of 3 on each sconce.

Each lamp holder is covered by a removable bronze candle tube with a decorative vertical pattern. This candle tube is held in place with a polished bronze circular screw. The lamp holder sits on a polished bronze bobeche with a unique Modernist convex shape on both sides reflecting beautifully the light. Each bobeche is attached to the bronze arm with an additional bronze detail.

At the centre of each frame, the arms come together and attach to a decorative circular polished bronze back plate. This back plate is smartly outlined with textured rope pattern edge. Inside the plate there is a flat bracket to hook on a small metal plate which in turn screws to the wall.

Each wall light has the original vintage 12 removable quality hand polished faceted crystals in a caramel/gold colour.

Each wall light takes 3 standard small screw E14 light bulbs up to 40 Watts. Presently fitted & photographed with Candle clear light bulbs.

These wall lights are in excellent condition for their age. The bronze frames have the original lacquered antique patina gently developed over time. The crystals are all in good condition.

Packing is offered free of charge. For safe transport, all the glass pieces will be removed and individually wrapped. These wall lights can fit within a box and easily posted.

Each crystal has a length of 11 cm and width of 3 cm.
