ANT-304 American Art Deco Signed Sconces
Cast 1920-30 Art Deco sconces signed “Riddle Made in USA” with an interesting shell shaped “step” slip-in shade.
The finish is pewter with high/lo accents. Riddle is “known” for exceptional decorative castings. As we look at these backplates with their myriad of lovely scrolls and decor, we can heartily agree.
The shades are secured with set screws and there is a horseshoe style seg at the back which notches into the shade with the back set screw. An interesting adaptation.
Electrical: These sconces have been totally re-wired in our UL shop. Normal bakelite sockets for everyday medium base bulbs was installed. The backplate has 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.
