Art Deco Clamshell Odeon Theater Wall Sconces Antique Theatre Lights (ANT-534)

ANT-534  Unusual Art Deco Odeon Style British Motif Theatre Sconces

A very neat shell motif set of the British theater sconces from England.  These sconces are often called "Odeon Sconces," since one of the main movie house chains in Britain named all their theaters "Odeon".

They vary in style...most popular was THIS shell motif.  In older British theaters, you can still see them existing where they have been for over half a century or more.  Odeon is sometimes a synonymous term for a movie theater in Britain.  "Let's go to the Odeon" is the same as saying, "let's go to the movies."

There are two things that make this particular pair of Odeon sconces different and unusual. First...the shades are TRUE OPAL color.  We have never had opal shades in Odeon sconces before. We have seen frosted, amber, pink, and even green...but never opal.  Secondly, each sconce has an array of three E12 (chandelier style) sockets.  Usually, these sconces have only ONE socket. The result of having three sockets is a nice, even lighting effect, which is simply lovely through the opal shades.

The sconces have brass frames with an antiqued red bronze finish.

We have rewired these sconces to UL American standards with new American chandelier sockets in our UL shop.  We installed our cute LED chandelier bulbs in each sconce, and will leave them in for the next owner, as we just think that these give the perfect ambiance.  So, these are ready to hang with an American standard light mounting kit which we will also supply.

Measurements:

  • Height:  8 ½"
  • Width:  10"
  • Projection:  4 ½" from the wall into the room.

As mentioned, these fine sconces use chandelier bulbs, either incandescent or LEDs.  In this case, we are including 6 pcs. of our 35C-E12 LED bulbs for these high-end sconces.

Price:  $650.00 for this great pair of UL rewired Odeon sconces with opal shades and triple sockets...plus shipping charges.
