Prince de Galles Hotel, Elegant Set of Four Brass Sconces, 1940

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This elegant set of two pairs of brass sconces comes from a set of 1970 sconces we acquired from the Prince de Galles Hotel in Paris.

The sconce bodies are all in their original condition from 1940 and each have varying degrees of natural patina. We've had two custom Ivory pongee shades.

These two pairs are the last ones we have with this beautiful patina.

We have included a photo of original shade in this listing.

Measures: H 16"5/8 x W 19" x D 9"1/8.
