I recently bought this electric wall sconce. It reminds me of the type of lamp called a "femme fleur" that has a statue of a woman with foliage around and light sockets incorporated into flower heads. However, this sconce never was attached to a statue. It seems to have always hung on a wall, as there is no evidence that it was ever attached to anything else. It was also not hard-wired into the wall, but had a cord that would have been plugged in to an outlet. It is made of bronze or brass that is patinated and partly painted. There are three large rose flowers that had sockets in them. The sockets are gone, but the old cloth-covered wires are still there. There are also various smaller glass flowers sprinkled throughout the leaves. The two main stems are soldered together and then wrapped with twisted wire.
I have never seen anything like this and wonder whether anyone else has. I would appreciate any thoughts on its origins. According to the seller, it was found hanging on the hallway wall of a brownstone house in Brooklyn.
