Pair of Wall Brackets In Louis XV Style

These wall brackets are good quality 20th Century copies with a high degree of detail and finishing work. These are brass and I suspect they are not gold plated but have a close resemblance to mellowed gilding. The wood top shelves are painted to resemble marble.
