Lovely pair of double Circa 1920 wall sconces. They are signed, cast into the metal, “Brandt Mfg Co., Patent applied for”. Who wouldn’t like to consider that these had something to do with a member of the Edward Brandt family who are famous for doing the iron work at the Paris 1925 expo in Paris. Just a thought.
These sconces have a nice Edwardian ambiance having a pewter look with a heavy cast and embellished backplate design that is so typical of the Edwardian design style.
The shades are simple opal and match the straight line ambiance of the fixtures quite well. They
are in excellent condition.
The metal, of the backplates, is cast iron with a lovely pewter finish. Ready to go...nothing needs to be done except add the light bulbs of your choice. These sconces have been completely re-wired with true bakelite sockets and all new wire.
We suggest using our neat little LED bulb 45G-E26 (pictured below) if these sconces are for ambiance and less that full room light. This little 2 watt bulb (1.6 watts actually) produces almost as much light as a 25 watt incandescent bulb but only nibbles at the electricity. AND....it lasts 30,000 hours. Neatest thing...it has been found to be very attractive to many customers when compared to some of the “armor plated” looking versions out there.
Measurements: Each overall sconce height is 11”. The maximum width is 10” (outside edge of the shade to shade). It will project into the room, from the wall a mere 4”.
