Small losses to some flower petals and a few leaf tips. One branch is shortened. The trailing pink head ribbon is repaired with a staple in the middle. The ribbon repair is the most obvious and as it is on the back, an average observer would not notice it.

Rococo Style Wall Sconces, Carved and Silver Gilt Pair

Hand carved pine with gesso and patinated oxidized silver gilt. They appear to be 1st quarter of the 20th Century and electrified around the same time or a little later. The original models for these suggest 18th Century England as they are more slender than many of the heavier Continental examples.
