Pair of French 1st Empire Dore Bronze Mtd. 5-Arm Mirrored Sconces, Att. Thomire

$36,800per set

About

A Magnificent Pair of French 1st Empire Period Dore bronze mounted five-arm sconces/mirrors, Attributed to Pierre-Philippe Thomire. Each mirrored sconce is of octagonal form with a beautiful antique, original, mirrored backing on a dore bronze mounted frame. The dore bronze frame's border is very elaborately decorated with hand-chased and hand-chiseled designs of small octagonal frames, which are similar to the actual form of the sconces. The dore bronze arms are of armorial design and originate from the open mouth of a lion. They are all beautifully hand-chased and hand-chiseled with tremendous detail. The dore bronze mounts are all burnished and matted creating a three-dimensional pattern for the sconces. They are further decorated with flags, arrows, axes, and various vines and leaves. Sconces of this quality and craftsmanship are especially rare and were most probably made by the great Pierre-Philippe Thomire, one of the best bronziers during the Empire period. France, Circa: 1810.
