Questions about this piece?


Each wall light consists of a central blue metal stem, from which the two ormolu (gilt bronze) arms of the light spring.

The lapis-coloured stem of each light terminates at the bottom in an ormolu finial, and the stem is wrapped along its length by ormolu foliage. Halfway up its length, the stem is mounted with an ormolu classical style mask of a woman with flowing hair and closed eyes. Flanking this central motif, on each light, are two ormolu C-scroll arms. On one end, these arms terminate in expressive goats' heads, while the other end curls up and terminates in the wide drip-pans, foliate capitals, and simple sconces that hold the candle tubes. Within each C-scroll, there is a second curled ormolu shape, created by a fruiting vine that doubles back onto itself, creating a perch for a large bird. The two ormolu birds, positioned on the arms of each light, hold in their talons a flower garland, which hangs in the space between them. Each stem is topped by a large ormolu pinecone finial.

Both lights are stamped on their stem with 'R.G.', the initials of their maker.
