This is an exceptional pair of antique circa 1801 Empire wall sconces. They are gilt and patinated bronze featuring an Egyptian emperor bust at the top with three light candelabra in the form of heralding trumpets, each with a face on the curve. The gilt leafy wreaths add to the Impressiveness of these 20 inch tall ormolu wall sconces. They were stored in a box dated 1801 which is correct for the period of these rare Egyptian revival sconces. One half of a laurel wreath is no longer attached at the back. Imagine the magnificent room these wall sconces would have lit!  They would be mysterious and elegant flickering in the candlelight.
