PAIR OF ROUND TIN SCONCES, AMERICAN, 19TH C.

These are the best pair of early round tin sconces that I have found in a long time. They have crimped edges with impressed circles and lines on the flat surfaces and pie crust drip pans. The candle sockets are split and folded the way they should be. The surface is outstanding with good oxidation on front and a slightly shiny back, just the way they should be. The front of the sconces would have been exposed to the air and light to oxidize them while the backs would have been against the wall and protected from the oxidizing effects of sunlight and room air, hence, less oxidation. The sconces are 9 1/4” in diameter and they wax catchers are 4 1/4” out from wall. 19th century. American. No issues.
