Pair of Wall Lights
André-Charles Boulle (French, 1642 - 1732, master before 1666)
Paris, France (Place created)
about 1715 - 1720
Each of these two
The wall lights are not marked with a maker's name, but the lower portion closely follows a design by André-Charles Boulle that was published around 1720. The printed design records that the wall lights were intended for a room with a low ceiling. Wall lights were usually attached to mirror frames so that the mirror's reflections would increase the effect of the candlelight.
