American Art Deco Streamline Sconces by Virden (ANT-911)

ANT-911 American Art Deco STREAMLINE Sconces by Virden

Cast 1939 Art Deco sconces signed that are in the Virden catalog #39 (i.e. 1939 as the catalog number reflected the year it was published.) These sconces were item 6001 from the Carleton Series and Virden bragged: “Underwriters Approved”.

The metal finish is pewter while the shades have that typical streamline concentric rings which are so very iconic streamline design and shade colors are all original and near mint.

There is a tiny roughness to the frames....but as cast and 1930s produced. It’s pretty plain in the pictures...not perfect...but nice antiques. Each sconce shows an additional hole that Virden did not plan. What the holes were for (?)...who knows....but commenserate with age and use. There is also a nick in one backplate-seen in the pictures. So...are these selling for top dollar (?)...no they aren’t ! We have deducted two-hundred from the price from the last pair sold (ANT-774). So...if you are a true antiquer...love the life that antiques have led with all their bumps and bruises, perhaps these might be yours with a savings too.

Electrical: These sconces have been totally re-wired in our UL shop. Normal bakelite sockets for everyday medium base bulbs was installed. The sconces have a rotary switch for on and off. The sconce mounts with one normal sconce mounting all-thread to a normal electrical box from within the case. All mounting hardware will be supplied.

Measurements: Overall height is 7 1/2” from the top of the shade to the bottom of the metal backplate. Overall widest part of the case is 7” wide. Projects into the room 4”.

Price: $650.00 for the pair (reduced from 850 sold last time) plus careful packing and shipping.
