Large & Early Tin Candle Sconce

Just found at the Heartland Antique Show, I'm pleased to offer a large tin candle sconce with fancy cut-outs, punching and decorative edges.

It is still not solidly attached but not noticeable when hanging. Rolled tin candle cup and pan. The sconce measures 12-1/2" wide x 20-1/2" tall.
