Pair of Opaline Glass Cocoon Sconces
Pair of wall lights, in opaline glass, patinated brass and dark blue metal, France, 1950s.
These pair of cocoon sconces which can be attached to a wall, have a shape of cocoons which give them an organic feeling. The lightbulb is made with opaline glass and there is painted stripes in light brown which adds a warm light. The colour combination with the dark blue body, the brass stems and the art glass bulbs form a sculptural whole. Interesting detail is that the cocoons can turn as they are attached to a swivel mechanism. Switched on via a cord at the bottom.
