The firm of Joseph Stubbs of Burslem, England made this medium blue view of New York’s City Hall after the drawing by William Guy Wall and then published in 1826 by Behr & Kahl.

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.
