Superb pair of VINTAGE French-country style DECORATIVE cast iron CANDLE SCONCES with DOVES IN FLIGHT; shabby chic/rustic. These lovely decorative wall candle sconces were a gift to me 25-30 years ago; they were, I believe, bought in an antiques/ secondhand shop in Herefordshire. Generous in size, they have a distinctly French country style, ideal for a shabby chic interior, and could be used as a focal point within a room (for example positioned either side of a large over-mantle mirror, or in alcoves); they would equally be perfect for a romantic wedding. Made of cast iron and with lovely detailing, the sconces can be taken apart to be cleaned. There are two large, newish Phillips screws to the reverse which hold the arm of the sconce to the back plate, while the sweet and characterful doves can be unscrewed and turned to face in a different direction or be removed for cleaning (the screw on the base of the birds is old and a little rusty).There is a little residual candle wax in the candle-holder (easily removed). The cream paintwork is worn and stained, and there is rust coming through as shown in the photos, but the patination and wear add both to the authenticity of the piece and its charm. Could be cleaned and repainted if desired. Height to wing tip: 10 ins/ 25.5 cm. Width of back plate: 11.5 ins/ 29.2 cm.
Projection: 11 ins/ 28 cm. Wing span: 6.5 ins/ 16.5 cm. A lovely decorative pair of sconces, perfect for both a modern and traditional interior.
