Pair of "Poule" Wall Sconces


circa 1948

glazed earthenware, parchment shades

14 1/2 in. (36.8 cm) high each excluding fittings

8 1/4 in. (20.9 cm) diameter of shades

Overall in very good condition. The glazed ceramic surfaces present with surface irregularities and minor open air bubbles inherent to production as well as light craquelure consistent with age and the natural evolution of the medium. The glazed ceramic presents with very faint scattered scratches and minor abrasions consistent with gentle use. The reverse of one “Poule” with a very minor chip to the glazed ceramic surface measuring approximately ⅛ in., not visually distracting when the sconce is installed. The ceramic with light surface soiling concentrated to the recessed contours. The shades are in excellent condition overall. Sotheby's does not guarantee electrical components and suggests having all wiring inspected by a licensed electrician. The sconces have been inspected under UV light and present with no apparent evidence of restoration.
