Description

Each wall light in this set of five is crafted entirely from ormolu. Each light features an ornate backplate finely modelled as a stem wrapped with ribbons and acanthus leaves that terminates above in a sculptural putto blowing two horns. The intricately cast backplate of each supports the springing of two light branches, each branch adorned below with a superbly cast leafy scroll. Each branch terminates in a single light fixture above a foliate drip pan.
