Pair of Rare Sconces designed by Gio Ponti made in Italy in 1950
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
