An original gilt bronze gas light sconce, this lovely young woman holds the light above her head, while acanthus leaves drape and curl from her waist, and the original key for adjusting the flame is still attached. The fixture measures 12 1/4", and has never been modified or electrified. The surface is dirty, and there is some apparent wear to the gilded surface, but there are no breaks, cracks, or losses to bronze. A beautiful form, with very finely cast detail, this gilded lady could grace the walls of even the finest estate.
