We kindly suggest you read the whole description, because with it we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to guarantee the authenticity of our objects. Original and very special pair of Italian wall sconces; they are formed by three bars of lead crystal with a hexagonal star-shaped section and a half-bar at the bottom; the crystals have been cut, ground, and polished with absolute perfection and arranged on the brass frame in a balanced and dynamic manner, so that the light from the single bulb placed in the center is filtered in a skillful and rational way; the structure consists of a plate on which a cylinder with the lamp holder is attached, from this cylinder the arms with the crystals branch off, and under it is attached a half bar of embellishing crystal. On the back of the plaque are the electrical wires connected to the light point and two holes for attaching the sconces to the wall, the brass of the plate on the back is a bit stained, but since it is leaning against the wall it is not visible (see photo). The sconces were made between 1970 and 1975 by a lighting workshop working for the Stilnovo Company, the craftsmen created these two objects in the style of designer Gaetano Sciolari. Angelo Gaetano Sciolari (1927-1994) was an Italian designer and entrepreneur. He contributed greatly to the success of Italian design around the world and particularly in the United States. Throughout his career, he designed incredible and wonderful lights; after his father died in 1949, Sciolari had to run the family light manufacturing business. Within a few years, the designer turned the firm into an international enterprise; Gaetano was a brilliant businessman, but he was also a prolific and talented designer. He worked for big names in design such as Stilnovo, Boulanger, and Stilkronen. Measures width cm.15, depth cm,13, height cm.29. The sconces are in good condition. The electrical system is working but the wiring is European, the compatibility of the voltage in other countries must always be checked by an electrician before use. For all our shipments we use special packaging materials (wooden crates, styrofoam, etc.) for maximum protection and safety of the objects.
