A very fine quality pair of mid 18th century gilt bronze wall appliqués conceived circa 1750, these wall lights are typical of the finest work produced during the high rococo period under the reign of Louis XV. The design is exceptionally accomplished with sinuous rococo forms moving effortlessly without interruption invite the eye to note every detail.

The gilt bronze work is exceptionally good with finely chased details to the arms, drip pans and nozzles, the surface with burnished gilt work contrasted with matt edges to give contrast to the opulent gold plated surface. Cast with the lost wax process, the backs retain some of the sand from the original casting which is a very nice detail to note.
