Pair of Neoclassical Antique French Empire Style Gilt Bronze Sconces, circa 1870

About

A pair of neoclassical antique French gilt bronze sconces Napoleon III period circa 1870. This pair of three arm French sconces feature a bold portrait head of Bacchus Dionysus (look at the entwined grape clusters and grape leaves entwined in the hair) at the top of the back plate that serenely gazes into space. The center candle arm is elevated above the right and left arms and all three have a candle nozzle. The super engraved decoration is quite eye-catching over the entire surface of the sconces. Please enlarge the photographs to see the details in close up including the reverse side.
