Details

These are absolutely gorgeous SIREN wall sconces.

Purchased at an estate sale believe to be bronze and around 100 years old.

They are two /a pair of Sirens.

The patina is rich and quite beautiful of course understanding the age of these pieces you will see that the patina is different in each. The reason for this is that they were in use and one was exposed to the sun through a window. I’ve also noticed That there is a powdery substance on one possibly a cleaning compound or paint.

I have not touch these or change them in anyway they are as found. Sold as is so please ask questions before purchasing.

These are exquisite pieces I’ve never seen anything that resembles them.

Sirens. Half-birds, half beautiful maidens, the Sirens were singing enchantresses capable of luring passing sailors to their islands, and, subsequently, to their doom. Daughters of the river god Achelous and a Muse, they were fated to die if anyone should survive their singing

Melusine (French: [melyzin]) or Melusina is a figure of European folklore and mythology, a female spirit of fresh water in a sacred spring or river. She is usually depicted as a woman who is a serpent or fish from the waist down (much like a mermaid).
