Pair of large sculptural sconces designed by arch Gio Ponti made in Milan 1950. White enameled frames each with two triangular brass; enamel elements that house two bulbs each which illuminate a beautiful light.
Each sconce displaying a porcelain figure in Chinese costume, this is the way these sconces were originally shown in the apartment in Italy.
Very few sconces of this type were made, I am sure that all were commissions, similar sconces are illustrated in Gio Ponti book “Larte si innamora dellindustria” pages 250 – 253.
Rare and unusual, great design by one of Italys best architects of the 20th century.
Rewired, they each take four E14 25W bulbs. Offered by Fred Silberman
