Art Deco Wall Sconces Antique 1930s Slip Shade Berkeley Lights Virden (ANT-672)

ANT-672  Art Deco Pair of Slip Shade Wall Sconces by Virden

A nice pair of Art Deco sconces, made by Virden and pictured in their catalog of 1931.  Finished in old gold, they definitely have a feeling of Arts & Crafts, along with their Art Deco nature.  We suggest that they could be used in either design scheme.

Virden called this series:  The Berkeley Line.  There were chandeliers with various support types, but only one wall sconce...and it was this one.  It was stock numbered 1401.  This pair of nice sconces are finished in an Art & Crafts style of old-gold, and have an air of Gothic to them, while still remaining Deco.  This design crossed a few decorative motifs.

The shades are amber, and in good...remarkable...condition.

Measurements:

  • Height:  11", measured from the top of the shade to the bottom of the backplate.
  • Width:  6 ¼" (maximum)
  • Projection:  4 ½" from the wall into the room.

These sconces have been completely re-wired in our UL shop, and have new sockets and rotary switches.  Sockets can easily handle 100 watt incandescent bulbs.  All mounting hardware will be supplied.

Price:  $750.00 for the complete UL re-wired pair of antique sconces and amber shades...plus shipping.
