Newton School copper candle sconces
A pair of copper wall sconces made by the Newton School of Metal Work, circa 1910.
The matching pair of sconces have back plates with large flowers in repousse against a hammered background. The candle holders are attached to wide, shaped, copper strips decorated with a simple punched design and attached to the back plates using copper rivets.
This particular design appears in the archive of the Newton School of Metal Work. The design (shown) is a working template used to transfer the design to the metal. The style of the design strongly suggests it is by John or Mary Williams.
In lovely condition with a nice even patina.
Dimensions: 11″ tall by 5 1/4″ wide and 6″ deep
Condition: Good. Some verdigris/polish residue in the respousse design
