Pair of 1850 Archer, Warner, Miskey & Co. Figural Gas Wall Brackets
Authenticated in the Archer, Warner, Miskey catalog of 1850. See plate below.
These pair of wall sconces are outstanding and have never been converted to electricity. The castings are sharp and highly detailed and they feature their original finish. Figural sconces of this vintage are extremely rare. Although they are missing their upper bobeche (see original plate) they do have very rare and ornate backplates which will cover an electrical box.
If restored by us, the sconces will be wired to CSA standards and fitted with period or period style glass shades.
