This elegant pair of vintage wall lights by Gaetano Sciolari are a reinterpretation of the traditional Neoclassical sconce. Key design features such as the swag & scroll form are kept simple for a Modern clean look. They have Italian craftsmanship and attention to detail, emphasized with the use of polished & satin gilt finishes. The metal frames are quality cast and have a good weight. This design would suit a range of interiors such as Antique, Traditional, Hollywood Regency, Post Modern, or Contemporary. These vintage lights have the original maker`s label `SCIOLARI ROMA` still attached behind each round base. Each wall bracket is also stamped `SCIOLARI` as photographed.
At the centre of each frame there is a cartouche body in satin finish with an embossed decorative effect trim in polished finish. From this base spreads out 2 scrolling arms in polished finish. These rise slightly upwards, each holding a bobeche in a satin finish with a polished beaded trim. On the bobeche there is the a lamp holder & removable cover with a satin reeded finish and two horizontal bands. Under the bobeche there is a long decorative finial with a twisted rope design also in a satin finish. Between the arms runs a `string of beads`. The contrast between the satin & polished finishes creates different reflections and depth.

This metal plate has 2 holes through which it is screwed to the wall. Each light is finished with a new clip-on black silk lampshade. These have black fabric trim and metallic gold lining.
