Custom Sconces & Frame for Collectable Display
A pair of wall sconces and frame commissioned for poppy display, by a return customer of the Yard. The Brief: "48cm tall poppies along with a certificate... one blank wall ready!"
Using reclaimed redwood, the sconces were shaped and smoothed by hand, then sealed with teak oil to protect the timber and highlight the stunning grain, to offer truly a unique set for display purposes.
At 50cm in height, the upper wedges on each sconce incorporate a small hole, to hold the poppy stems in place. The accompanying handmade frame, to fit an A5 certificate, detailing the authenticity and description of the poppies.
These pieces made up a custom order and prices will depend on specific detail/requirements.
As a guide: sconces £20-40, frames up to 30cm £20
