This heavy pair of cast brass wall sconces, have double arms which screw off as does the candle cup, shown in the last photo. Perhaps considered for traveling long ago...! Such a lovely and classic Federal design, very well made, with a lovely patina! Of course can be polished if you prefer. Found in a market near London.Marked Made In England. Measures 10 1/" tall and 10" across arms. circa 1930
This beautifully carved plate was presented for a "Trek Across Bern" 1937…maybe equivalent to a marathon? The little hanger on the back has removed and marks on the front indicate it was then most likely used as a bread board. A nice daily reminder of glory for someone. This is a very handsome piece,especially for a runner! 11" dia. Several more vintage bread boards newly listed!
Unique trays are always desirable! This British faux bamboo and brass tray originally had a painted design on the tray, as you might see remnants of painted foliage on the tray surface. I think it would be stunning with a mirror added! The turned wood in bamboo pattern is a beautiful caramel color, and the original brass handle tips have original patina. Perfect for tea service and more! Measures 18" X 12"
"Give Us Our Daily Bread" in French with a shield and cross over sheaf of wheat carved into this large charming bread board! Excellent condition with age and use marks. Wonderful for serving as well as display!
This rare tree stand is perfect to use on the floor or table! The raised markings are Bulach Suisse No.5299.It has brass set screws to secure the cast metal rim to your tree- up to 2 1/2" diameter. When filled with water it makes a very secure stand for your tree. Measures 8" X 6" tall , and the collar is 3.5". Perfect vintage condition! Circa 1930.
A wonderful find and absolutely delightful paired with the German Fence shown in the last photo, see item #687135!

This beautiful European crucifix seems to be of pewter but it could be something else, there are no markings, but it does have a lustre to it. There's a new felt bottom. It measures 10 1/2".
I just love the design of this antique wall sconce ,even though some unknowing soul painted over it's original painting with a black color. There are traces of the original paint,green and red and perhaps an area of gilt showing in areas. The base is a branch of acanthus leaf stemming from a fleur de lis inverted,measuring 8.5" , it's approx. 13" wide,and projects approx. 7" out. The arms seem to have the original large wooden candle socket covers...
This heavy wall sconce is mounted on carved wood.The real delight is the hand painted design,pale blue w/olive branches and gilding! It is most unique and I'm sure you have lots of" perfect places" for it. Only needs rewiring for the U.S. or use it as the Europeans do with a candle instead !!.12" h x 8"h with 7" projection.
Lovely vintage Florentine gilt tray with pink and green accents.This tray is in perfect shape and could also be perfect on your wall !
