The chains you see in the photo are not part of the sconces but support taking the photo shots. The sconces were created between 1950 and 1955 by a workshop on the outskirts of Paris, where the craftsman managed to come up with two unique, precious, and elegant products. The appliques each have only two points of light, but when they are turned on, the ground crystals refract the light with infinite facets, and enchanting reflections are created that enhance their decorative effect, but they can also give an exciting glow just thanks to the natural light reflected from the crystals; their extreme classicism and their romantic line, make them extremely versatile and easily placed in any environment.
