Caldwell Attributed Gilded Age Bronze Hand Torchiere Wall Sconces

$32,000per set

About

American Gilded Age or Belle Époque pair of heavy patinated cast bronze hand torchiere wall sconces, attributed to Edward F. Caldwell & Co. in New York City. The pair of sconces has elaborate drapery from which life-sized hands emerge, holding up torches with flame-shaped glass shades, reminiscent of the torch held up by Lady Liberty. The pair is marked on the back with 'C' initials. Likely made during the late 1880s to early 1890s when New York City was under the spell and charm of the recently inaugurated Statue of Liberty. In remarkable antique condition with desirable patina.
