A unique hammered wall sconce, naïvely handcrafted from brass in Sweden, circa 1950.

Although a humbly made object, this sconce, for one candle, has clearly been made with love, perhaps by a young student, for a family member or a romantic interest.

The shape of the main body is reminiscent of a quatrefoil (four leaves) an ancient symbol (of four overlapping circles) for good luck and harmony. The quatrefoil enjoyed its peak popularity during the Gothic and Renaissance eras but there are references in Moorish and Islamic structures that pre-date this.

The entirety of the quatrefoil shaped backplate has been hammered. Under candlelight, this creates a stunning light effect, a mesmerising interplay of shadows and radiance.

The candle holder & drip tray, and the arm which extend these from the backplate have also been hammered so all parts contribute to the atmospheric light display described above. In daylight the brass remains attractive as it now boasts an even and rich patina.
