Pair of two-light wall brackets


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 631

The preference of the Rococo for continuous swirling and curvilinear lines is well expressed in the shape of these wall sconces of which a number of closely related models exist. The flickering flames of the candles would have enhanced the sense of movement.
