Customer Question
Would like to establish...

Would like to establish age of a pair of wrought iron wall sconces and find out if it diminishes value to have them wired. Also, they are a bit rusty, should they be cleaned or left to age?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I believe these are late possibly late 17th or 18th century, at some point someone wired some beautiful rock Chrystals to them ,
