Pair of Monumental Classical Revival Cast Bronze Sconces by Caldwell Item # R7047
When Pompeii and Herculaneum were discovered, the Classical Revival was born in Europe. When the United States declared independence and set up a Greek-style Democracy, the Classical Revival was born in America. The endless refined appeal of Classical design stretches across the 19th and 20th centuries, and encompasses variations like Beaux Arts, Neo-Classical, Rococo and Greek Revival. Design elements like coves and ogees are borrowed from ancient architecture, and ornaments are predominated by acanthus leaf, Greek key, egg and dart, and wave motifs. While most Classical Revival lighting was at home in municipal and public buildings, these impressive fixtures make great focal points for today’s homes of any style.
- Historical Style: Classical Revival
- Unmarked, but of a quality and design consistent enough to make the attribution to E. F. Caldwell. Incredible ornamentation cast into every surface of the detailed filigree, from the stylized, pierced backplates to the crenelated bobeches.
- Condition Notes: Perfectly aged patina, with hints of verdigris in some details of the casting. Over the years the filigree castings have been broken and repaired in several spots, but the repairs are well done and inconspicuous.
- Bulbs not included.
