ANT-574 American Art Deco Pair of Slip Shade Wall Sconces by Lincoln
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 "Oriental Reversible," which had a fancy logo that also said "Two in One" with a picture of a large 1 with a 2 inside of it. They were quite proud that they found a way to use a shade either upwards...or downwards without any changes. And...yes...these shades can be turned upside down too.
Lincoln's catalog described this series as such: "The shades on these fixtures can be used either up or down. Simply lift off and rehook in a reversed position."
The frames still maintain a bit of touches of color, and the finish is totally original.
The deeply carved shades are gold-amber and in good...remarkable...condition for their age.
Height: 10" overall.
Width: 4 ½" maximum.
Projection: 6" from the wall into the room.
These sconces have been completely re-wired in our registered UL shop with new sockets and rotary switches. Sockets are capable of up to 100 watts. If using incandescent light bulbs, we recommend using a maximum of 60 - 65 watts to prevent heat damage to the antique slip shades. More light output can be achieved by using LED or compact fluorescent light bulbs. These efficient bulbs yield more light without excessive heat.
All mounting hardware will be supplied.
$750.00 for the complete pair of sconces, which have been re-wired with their original shades.
Shipping adds a bit extra.
