Wall light (2) - Brass

Wall light (2) - Brass
Italy - 1920-1949

Wonderful pair of 1-light brass wall lamps in Art Nouveau style. They look very nice despite some spots due to ageing. I’ve always polished them, but never too much in order to preserve their antique patina.
They consist of a 5 cm deep disc to fix on the wall and a U-shaped rod: on the upper part, it is decorated with brass double lines that show geometrical designs; the tubular part in the middle looks like a chiselled rope and the lower part ends with a 9 cm wide round lamp holder, with a fine lace-like top decoration.
The electrical system needs to be redone. The brass shows signs of ageing and I didn’t have them restored as I like them as they are. I’ve hung them between two paintings as pieces of decor in my country house. The spots show their real age.
