This set of four wall sconces have been crafted in the fashionable Maison Bagues style. They are distinctive for their elegant bird and flower forms that have been crafted from moulded glass and rock crystal.

Founded by Noel Bagues in 1860, the Maison Bagues is world-renowned for creating luxury lighting. The company employs traditional, hand-worked products which are created by specialist craftsmen. Their work has been displayed in grand hotels, such as George V in Paris and London’s Savoy.

The body of each piece is conical in shape, with a gilt metal tip, from which a faceted crystal bead hangs. This cone is topped by a parrot that has been beautifully carved from rock crystal. In the set of four, one pair of scones feature birds that turn to the right, whilst the birds on the second pair turn to the left. On each piece, slender, twisting gilt metal branches grow from the rim of the conical body, extending up to form a pair of lights. These arms are decorated with crystal leaves and flowers, delicately incised with leaf veins, petals and pistil. Above, the lights are cast with foliate gilt metal drip-pans and nozzles, and each piece is crowned by a large crystal flower.

Switched on, the glass and rock crystal will absorb the light, and the gilt will catch and reflect it, causing the piece to glow and glimmer.
