Antique Wall Sconces w/ Seashell Motif Amber Color Shades Circa 1920s (ANT-528)

ANT-528  Twenties Era Wall Sconces..a Pair

Lovely set of Circa 1920s 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.  They are a cast glass, with a deep pattern that is nicely shaped.

Admirable is how the shapes are all tied together.  There is a scroll on the backplate, repeated with a scroll on the shade fitter and finial too.  Even the tops of the shades repeat this curve to tie all the decorative elements together.  A nice presentation.

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 bulbs 45G-E26B if you wish for 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 - 30,000 hours.

These sconces have been completely re-wired in our UL shop with new sockets and wire.  Each sconce contains a rotary on/off switch identical to the ones used in the early 1900s.

Measurements:

  • Height:  10" overall.
  • Width:  5 ¼" (maximum)
  • Projection:  6" from the wall into the room.

Price for the pair:  $385.00 plus careful packing and shipping.
