Here is a very elegant pair of sconces in bronze with brown patina and bronze with golden patina from the Empire period.

This model can easily be attributed to Lucien-François Feuchère or Pierre-Philippe Thomire thanks to the decorative elements identical to those of a series of four pairs of sconces delivered by Lucien-François Feuchère, intended for the gallery of the castle of Meudon between 1810. and 1811 (see photo) as well as the work of the sconces of a pair of candelabras delivered by Thomire and Duterme on July 11, 1810 for the Empress's bedroom at the Tuileries Palace (see photo).

Indeed, we find there:

-2 cornets of abundance highlighted with a long acanthus leaf and starting with a swan's head

-a ball on which the branches of light are adapted

-a ring of very fine streaks at the exit of the cornucopias, just before the cups

Our wall lights continue their decoration with two large palmettes ending in a flower button, and their bobeches are finely chiseled with a pattern of braces.

 

I offer here a pair of high quality wall lights both in the bronze chasing and the quality of its original gilding.
