Art Deco Antique Polychrome Wall Sconces Amber Slip Shades by Riddle (ANT-515)

ANT-515  Art Deco Pair of Slip Shade Wall Sconces by Riddle

A nice pair of Art Deco sconces made by Riddle of Toledo, Ohio in the mid 30s.  In fact, these sconces are shown in our copy of Riddle's catalog of 1932.

This pair of nice sconces still retains the touches of original polychrome color accents put on in the factory.  Naturally, they are worn like a good persian carpet...but touches are still there.

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

These sconces have been completely re-wired with new sockets and rotary switches.   Sockets can easily handle up to 100 watts.  If incandescent bulbs are used, we recommend no more than 60 - 65 watts to protect the fragile antique shades from excessive heat.  Increased light output can be achieved by using energy efficient compact fluorescent or LED light bulbs.  These bulbs operate at cooler temperatures without sacrificing light.

Measurements:

  • Height:  11"
  • Width:  5 ¾"
  • Projection:  3 ¼" from the wall into the room.

All mounting hardware will be supplied.

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