Swedish Gustav III Monogram Candle Sconce
The talented Swedish designer Maria Lilliecreutz is behind this unique candle sconce. The plaque is handmade of plaster and fibreglass (for stability). The candle holder is hand forged iron.
The inspiration for this art piece is an original plaque from the 18th century hanging in the basement of an old building behind the Royal Theater in Stockholm. The monogram of the Swedish King Gustav III (1746-1792), adorns the plaque. Gustav III is among the more well-known of the Swedish monarchs, famous for his passion for theatre and architecture and culture in general.
Maria's version is very similar to the original plaque but the iron candle holder is her own design.
The candle holder is attached to the wall with two screws. The plaque is placed on top and hung with another screw. (3 screws enclosed).
Measurements: The plaque measures approx. 22 (h) x 13 (w) inches.
Handmade in Sweden.
