The barbed quatrefoil shape of the wallplate on our Moroe wall sconce takes a gothic shape and makes it modern. Historically, this motif made of antiqued mirror could have represented an escutcheon emblazoned on a carriage or a coat of arms but fitted with the tailored shade, it easily morphs to a luminary made for contemporary times. Place it on each side of a fireplace to reflect the texture of the stone hearth or situate it on walls that have plentiful natural light to see it glint even during the day.
Heavily watermarked and corroded, these mirrors are meant to look ages old. The variations of colors found under the toughened glass are a result of tin sulfates and mildly acidic solutions that interact under the sun. They will continue to age with time and exposure to light. No two will ever be alike, so rest assured that the one that ends up over your fireplace is truly one of a kind... This represents the full range of what may come out of any given box.
