ANT-318 Art Deco - Lovely Pair of 1920 Art Deco Wall Sconces
Lovely pair of circa 1920 wall sconces. Original antique backplates and original antique shades.
These sconces have a lovely Edwardian pewter look and a great design that is so typical of the Edwardian style.
The original antique shades are very nice. A frosted center set off by two sections of amber. Being antiques, there is a place “or two” where there are very MINOR flakes to the shades where they fit into the holder (not seen). It is normal 90 year wear-tear and so very minor, but we have to mention it.
The metal of the backplates is cast metal 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 new sockets and all new wire.
We suggest using our neat little LED bulb 45G-E26 (picture below) if these sconces are for ambiance and less than full room light. This little 2 watt LED bulb produces almost as much light as a 25 watt incandescent bulb, but only nibbles at the electricity. AND....it lasts 30,000 hours. We suggest it to prevent a bulb peeking over the rim of the shade, but we are showing it with a small incandescent bulb anyway.
The overall sconce height is 8”. The maximum width (shade) is 5 3/4”.
It will project into the room from the wall 6 1/2”.
Backplate measurements: 8” tall by 4 1/4” wide.
Price for the pair: $350.00 plus careful packing and shipping.
