ANT-494  Art Deco Sconces by Mid-West C. 1935

Mid-West was a top-of-the-line manufacturer, who in their beginning, only cast solid bronze lights that were exceedingly difficult due to their reticulated surfaces.  A bit later during the Depression, they added a white metal capacity to compete with Lincoln Mnf, who had the business of Sears.   During the Depression, Sears customers would NOT normally come up to the pricing level of Bronze Materials, so Mid-West created exciting new aluminum lines to compete.  Mid-West survived the Depression, and was sold a few years back to a large lighting conglomerate. (Information courtesy of the Kelly Art Deco Light Museum.)

These sconces are Bronzed & Nickel FINISHED on cast aluminum.  Like an old Persian carpet, some mellowed wear to the bronze finish is there, but still an outstanding pair of antique Art Deco sconces with mint condition frosted shades.

We have re-wired these sconces to UL standards with new sockets in our UL shop.  Each sconce has a rotary switch.  They are ready to hang with a standard light mounting kit, which we will supply.


  • Height:  11 ½"
  • Width:  6 ½"
  • Projection:  A mere 4" from the wall into the room.

These sconces can be fitted with either incandescent or LED bulbs.  We do not supply the bulbs, but our LED bulbs are available for purchase.  They are only 1.6 watts, and present themselves as a fantastic look.  Most folks think that a 25 watt bulb is installed.  Makes using these as night lights very inexpensive indeed.

Price:  $850.00 for the pair with their frosted, near-mint glass shades, plus shipping charges.
