two candle sconces

A recent Restoration for Channel 4 Mend it for Money.

Two cast ferrous candle sconces with a copper alloy emblem attached to the centre.  There is a maker’s mark, but finding any form of provenance for these objects was unsuccessful.  Evidence shows that they may have been replicas. Restoring objects like this, when not in your own workshop definitely has its challenges as you never know what happens once you start to disassemble them.  Not to mention oil gilding with specific time frames for the cameras in windy Scotland.  Definitely a challenge!
