Sitzendorf porcelain wall applique
Wall element: H 14.5 cm W 16.6 cm arms: H 16 cm W 16 cm
What you see is a Sitzendorf porcelain wall fixture with a flat wall piece and three candle holders with candle drippers, adapted for electric lighting. The wall piece is triangular in shape with a straight top edge, with full plastic C-curls and three side-by-side tub-shaped copper elements at the front that fit the enclosed three S-shaped porcelain candle holders with drainer, now modified with electrical wiring and lighting and with three cylindrical pseudo candles. At the back, the base has a wooden back applied to the porcelain. They all have a neo-rococo style with rich gilded decoration. The cylindrical neck merges into a convex lobed drainer with relief molding that extends into an S-shaped arm with copper cap that fits into the tub on the wall element. Each arm is covered with three fully plastic polychrome flowers with green leaves. In relief we see several raised palmettes that are gilded in relief. There are three identical arms. There is no mark to be seen, but it is without doubt Sitzendorf porcelain, dating from the beginning of the 20th century. Note: This applique is part of the Sitzendorf mirror, also presented, which can be found in the European porcelain category.
