A stunning and extremely decorative true pair of French turn of the century Louis XVI st. gilt metal and crystal parrot sconces by Maison Bagues. Each two arm sconce is centered by a lovely bottom crystal rosette and crystal pendant below the beautiful spiral fluted urn shaped body. The two gilt metal arms each display exceptional and most decorative scrolled designs adorned with charming leaves leading to floral bobeches and superb cut crystal candle cups. Above is a striking finely detailed parrot perched atop the urn with a remarkable silvered leaf background. All original gilt throughout.
Maison Bagues Founded in Auvergne, France, in 1840 by Nicolas Baguès, the company originally specialized in the creation of liturgical bronzes. Thanks to Baguès’ expansion into bronze lighting and the popularization of electricity, the business quickly found success. At the turn of the century, their chandeliers captured international interest, and soon Baguès began exporting to London, New York, Rome, Brussels, and Cairo. The company is best known for introducing to the world their now signature collections of finely crafted iron, gilt, and crystal chandeliers and wall sconces Parrots & Foliage. — Read Less
