Antique Pair Regency Style Ormolu Wall Lights Appliques 19th C

Antique Pair Regency Style Ormolu Wall Lights Appliques 19th C

This fantastic pair of Regency style twin branch antique ormolu wall lights date from the late 19th century. Featuring classical Regency elements, this fabulous pair of antique ormolu wall lights have anthemion, classical urn and palmette cast backplates that issue forth twin reeded scrolled branches. Originally designed as candelabra, they were later adapted for the use of electricity. The Regency style has had many revivals. The original era is commonly defined as spanning a period of about forty years from around 1795 to 1837 and is named after the Prince Regent who ruled as proxy for his father, George III until his death in 1820 and then took over as George IV. The period was one of great achievement and cultural refinement in Britain and furniture and interior design incorporated the motivations and inspirations of the Prince Regent who favoured the classical design of ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt. This pair of antique ormolu wall lights shows off many of the elements of Regency style including the use of classical urns and the palmette or anthemion. Ormolu is a technique for coating bronze, brass, copper or other metals with gold. The original process involved coating the item in an amalgam of finely ground high-cart gold and mercury and then firing this in a kiln. The mercury would ‘burn off’ in the process leaving the metal beautifully gilded with the gold. The process had to be changed with the use of Mercury being banned in the 1830s and it was replaced with the electroplating method, which is the one used today. This pair of antique ormolu wall lights have been created using the latter method. They are in excellent condition having been cleaned and fully rewired and PAT tested. You can see the condition of this pair of antique ormolu wall lights for yourself by taking a few moments to review the photographs. Explore our range of antique and period lighting here.
