Lovely Pair of Americana Slip Shade Sconces by Virden (ANT-921)

ANT-921  Lovely Pair of Americana Slip shade sconces by Virden

These lovely reticulated sconces were made by Virden & Co ., Circa 1930+.  They contain marvelous shades which must have been made by Consolidated Lamp & Glass Co. who were the absolute best American shade makers.

Consolidated Lamp & Glass Co of Corapolis, PA was one of America’s finest glass makers before and during the Great Depression.

Unfortunately....Consolidated went bankrupt no less than three times during the Great Depression.   They made outstanding consumer products i.e vases, bowls etc and most outstanding shades and lighting.

These Virden sconces were most likely made between 1931 and 1936.  They are cast aluminum with a red-bronze finish which is quite original and outstanding for it’s age.

These sconces have been completely re-wired, in our UL shop, with new sockets to conform to UL guidelines.  Each socket is capable of accepting a 100 watt bulb...but...we would recommend LED bulbs to protect the now older glass shades.

Measurements: 9” tall by 6 5/8”wide.  They project into a room 4 1/2”.

Price: $ 950.00  Remarkable and very unusual Virden sconces with Consolidated Glass shades, UL re-wired $ 950.00....plus careful shipping.
