Flavio Wall Sconce Candlestick - 33 cm Height - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter
This classic hand-crafted solid pewter wall sconce with candle fitting is simply functional, subtly ornate and stamped by the individual touchmarks of the Brescian artisans who created it in northern Italy.
Ever since the discovery of fire, humans have attempted to harness the power of flames to provide heat and light. Early attempts to create a portable fire were rather hazardous, but eventually fire was contained, often in the form of handheld sconces, and used to light the way in darkness. In fact, the word sconce derives from the Latin absconsus, which, amongst other meanings, signifies a covering or protection.
It is no surprise that wall sconces remain a popular style of lighting into the modern day; they provide a special gentle ambience to any living space, providing a romantic and reverent aura that only be achieved by reverting to natural reflective lighting methods featuring ancestral and primitive charm.
The handcrafted wall sconce is made from high quality pewter producing a subtly beautiful object; each one is unique as is hand-finished to produce a subtle patina for the candle’s flame to be reflected upon.
