Lovely set of circa 1920 wall sconces. Original antique sconces with original two color glass antique shades.
These sconces have a lovely Art Deco pewter look and a great design that is so typical of the Streamline deco style.
The original antique shades are also so very nice. They are a custard color in the middle, topped with a see-through darker rim with etched design.
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. We would recommend our LED bulbs, 45G-E26 if you wish ambient light rather than full room power. The ambiance of these bulbs is warm and they draw so little electricity (1.6 watts) that we have known folks that leave them on 24/7. The bulbs do have an expected life of 25,000 - 30,000 hours.
These sconces have been completely rewired in our UL shop with new sockets and all new wire. We have also replaced the rotary switches, made by Leviton in the 20’s...and were still being made up to ONE year ago. So these switches, by Leviton, are becoming even more antique as we note this.
Measurements: The overall sconce height is 9 3/8”. The maximum width (including the shade) is 6”. It will project into the room from the wall 7 1/4”. The backplate, by itself, measures: 7 1/4” tall by 4 1/2” wide.
Price for the pair: $350.00 plus careful packing and shipping.
