Asymmetrical Régence wall lamp (Louis XIV / Louis XV) has two sconces held by a nymph. Right and left models, note the “basins and bobeches” differ on each arm.

The Regency style is transitional and is situated between the Louis XIV and Louis XV styles around 1700 to 1730, under the regency of Philippe d´Orléans (1715-1723) Light in interiors was a constant concern under the Regency, which led to the multiplication of sources - candlesticks, candelabras, chandeliers and sconces - as well as elements that could reflect it - crystal pendants and wall mirror. On either side of the mirrors are fixed sconces whose asymmetrical shape offers two light sources, upwards and in the center towards the mirror. Animals are part of the decor: a dragon defies a kind of lizard whose sinuous body follows the shape of the arm. The room, enlarged by this endless perspective, takes on a magical character, in the evening, when the flames of the candles are reflected in the mirrors. The Regency style will last for a short time, it is characterized by the softening of the lines and the solemn aspect of the furniture manufactured until then, as well as by a very clear tendency to lightness and elegance. The invention of the curved line foreshadows the Louis XV style.
Applique Régence (Louis XIV/Louis XV) asymétrique a deux bras de lumières tenus par une nymphe. Modèles droite et gauche, noter les bassins et bobèches diffèrent sur chaque bras.

Le style Régence est transitoire et se situe entre les styles Louis XIV et Louis XV aux environs de 1700 à 1730, sous la régence de Philippe d’Orléans (1715-1723) La lumière dans les intérieurs est une préoccupation constante sous la Régence qui entraîne la multiplication des sources - bougeoirs, candélabres, lustres et bras de lumière - ainsi que des éléments pouvant la réfléchir - pendeloques de cristal et glace murale. De part et d'autre des miroirs, sont fixés des bras de lumière dont la forme asymétrique offre deux sources lumineuses, vers le haut et au centre vers la glace. Des animaux font partie du décor : un dragon défie une sorte de lézard dont le corps sinueux épouse la forme du bras. La pièce, agrandie par cette perspective sans fin, revêt un caractère féérique, le soir venu, lorsque les flammes des bougies se reflètent dans les glaces. Le style Régence durera peu de temps, il se caractérise par l'assouplissement des lignes et l'aspect solennel des meubles fabriqués jusqu'alors, ainsi que par une très nette tendance à la légèreté et à l’élégance. L’invention de la ligne galbée préfigure le style Louis XV.
