ANT-687 Pair of Antique Lightolier Shade Pewter Finish Sconces Circa 1920
Very nice pair of circa 1920s wall sconces. The gorgeous quality shades are Lightolier, and are custard color with the decal design so typical of shades from them. The lovely shaped drop-in shades are simply so unique both as to shape and decor. They even have a slight iridescence to them. Being original shades that are nearly 90 years old, there are some minor NEVER SEEN flakes where the shades are slipped into the fitters.
The backplates are normal cast metal, with a lovely pewter finish. The castings are crisp, and obvious of very fine quality.
Height: 9 ½" overall.
Width: 4 ¾"
Projection: 5 ¼" from the wall into the room.
These sconces have been completely rewired in our UL shop with new sockets, which are UL approved for up to 100 watts each. Also installed are new rotary switches (which are identical to the 1920's types). Everything here, both shades and backplates, are original. The mounting nut in the center of the backplate is an exact reproduction, since the originals were missing when we received the sconces. Very minor indeed. A full wall mounting kit will be provided.
Price: $395.00 plus a normal safe shipping charge.
