Art Deco Original Set of 4 Slip Shade Wall Sconces Lights by Lincoln (ANT-516)

ANT-516  Art Deco Set of Four Slip Shade Wall Sconces by Lincoln Mnf

A great set of Art Deco sconces made by Lincoln Mnf Co, Detroit, MI in the mid '30s.

Lincoln called the group that these sconces came from The Nile Group Series 8400.  Lincoln's catalog described this series as such:  "Papyrus, Lotus and representations of other objects, which would impress themselves upon you should you drift along with the current of the historical old Nile, are ingeniously worked out in the beautiful aluminum grill work castings, in the soft gold colored glass which hides the bulbs..."  A glowing description from Lincoln.  Sales techniques don't change much, do they?

The deeply carved shades are gold-amber, and in good...remarkable...condition for their age.

These sconces have been completely re-wired with new sockets and rotary switches.   Sockets can easily handle 100 watt incandescent bulbs; however, we recommend no higher than 60 - 65 watts incandescent to protect the fragile antique glass shades from excessive heat.  More light output can be achieved with cooler, energy efficient compact fluorescent or LED light bulbs.

Measurements:

  • Height:  11 ½" overall.
  • Width:  5 ½" (widest point).
  • Projection:  6" from the wall into the room.

All mounting hardware will be supplied.

$1,475.00 for the complete set of 4 rewired sconces, with their original gold-amber shades.  Shipping adds a bit extra.
