Restored Antique Set of Shell Motif Circa 1920s Wall Sconces (ANT-412)
Lovely set of circa 1920's wall sconces. Original antique sconces with amazing shell motif antique amber shades.
These sconces have a lovely before-depression pewter look and a great design that is so typical of the Twenties motif.
The amber shell motif shades are so very nice.
The metal of the backplates is cast metal, with a lovely light pewter finish. Ready to go...nothing needs to be done except add the light bulbs of your choice. We would recommend our LED bulb (45G-E26) if you wish ambient light rather than full room power. The shade is of a low type and these bulbs would fit perfectly. 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 re-wired in our UL shop with new sockets and wire. There are no switches for these sconces.
The overall sconce height is 11”. The maximum width (shade) is 5”. It will project into the room from the wall 6 1/4”.
Price for the pair: $385.00 plus careful packing and shipping.
