Pair of Exceptional Italian Sconces from the SS Ausonia

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Incredibly well crafted and stylish wall sconces from the First Class cabins of the SS Ausonia which transported passengers between Venice and Alexandria for Adriatica Lines. The SS Ausonia was a beautiful ship with sumptuous paneling and furniture designed by Nino Zoncada who formed part of the triumvirate of designers for post-war Italian luxury ocean liners along with Ponti and Pulitzer.

These are constructed from nickel plated brass for the armature and wall mount, polished sheet aluminum for the internal reflector cone and enameled aluminum for the outer cone. The color of the cone is a slate blue and has been refinished to match the original color. Note that the outer cone swivels on the sturdy nickel neck so the direction of light can be controlled.
