About the Item

REDUCED FROM $3250...Exquisite carving and detail highlight this pair of Italian Baroque silver gilt corner altar prickets as table lamps. Heavily carved and finished on one side, they were intended to be seen only from the front, hence corner pieces.

Evidence of old woodworm on back. Rewired, three way socket. Just add your shades. Absolutely exquisite and elegant. Northern Italy, Florentine. Outstanding antique beauties! Price is for the pair. Just add your choice of shades.
