Adeco Iron and Glass Vertical Wall Hanging Scroll and Fleur De Lis Design 1 Pillar Candle Holder Sconce
These were very quick to catch my eye as i have an array of wrought iron wall sconces in my home and I can tell you, the look is fabulous!
The difference here is the highly decorative appeal of the Fleur de lis adding that special touch of history and glamour, so perfect for a contemporary or French country style decor.
it’s easy to see why so many of us admire the Fleur lis as it has an eloquent beauty that is magnified by the mystery of it’s origins all wrapped up in a legend, where it is deemed an angel appeared and presented Clovis, the King of the Franks who reigned from the 4th to the 5th century, with a golden lily in tribute to his conversion to Christianity. It was before a battle against the Romans and their dwindling empire that Clovis called upon God to help him win the territory they were fighting over and when he did much to the delight of his christian wife, became a devout Roman Catholic. This legend inspired future French kings to have the Fleur de lis as their symbol of supreme monarchical power and today it’s mix of religious and heraldic messaging has seen the Fleur de lis adopted as an insignia by some parts of the USA army.
