Large brass sconces approximately 32” in length. Each weighs approximately 25lbs. Craftsmanship and hardware point toward early 20th c. origin. No signature or marks, however, estate labels attribute them to ‘Wolfson.’ I have confirmed through Wolfsonian Museum’s design curator that these are from Mitchell Wolfson’s family collection.
From the private collection of Miami’s Wolfson Family (of Wolfsonian fame), verified by estate labels and consultation with Wolfsonian curator.
This is a pair of late 19th century cast brass and gilded wrought metal decorative wall mount sconces with classical acanthus leaf design. These appear to be gas lit and not electrified. They are unsigned/unmarked though show quality craftsmanship. The provenance, or history of past ownership, connects these to the Wolfson Family whom established the Wolfsonian in Miami. The estimate is for the pair together and is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables.
