This candle sconce comes from the Rococo revival period of the mid 19th century. Sconce pieces of this period are intricate, with asymmetrical scrolls, curves and lavish carvings of flowers and foliage. The gold ornamentation comes from carving a layer of wood, gesso - a mixture of chalk and glue, and clay, before placing gold leafing or paint on top, as well as burnishing some elements.
