Antique, Two Light Cut Glass Candle Sconces, Brass Arms, Nozzles & Drip Pans
England, Early to Mid-18th C. - SOLD
A rare and desirable pair of shaped glass wall sconces featuring cut decoration and ground edges; the glass is mounted on conforming wood backs having wrought iron straps designed for hanging.
