ANT-432 Unique French Art Deco Pair of Sconces
The outward design elements...the glass shade and sconce frame...are original, to be seen and appreciated. It is what is behind the shade that drove our UL lighting shop back to the drawing board.
These French sconces turned out to be a work of electrical re-design with the newest state-of-the-art LED technology to give us the results we wanted. Because these truly are French antiques, the lighting used for such a large shade that reaches out from the wall to give a 3D lighting affect, was truly, originally, badly designed. It gave a minimum impact for a shade of this size...and of course...used only ONE French socket for one insignificant bulb.
So...we went to work. We redesigned with a dual-use socket (called G9), with a state of the art type LED bulb (called a COB G9 bulb) to give, what we think, is a truly beautiful lighting condition. Nice that these bulbs are only 7.5 watts each, but put out a whopping 60 watts each equivalent.
They also have a range of current supply of 85v to 265v, so brownouts and spikes will not effect these bulbs. And yes...this is California UL approved energy standard, since the socket is G9 with a state of the art LED COB bulb.
We have both sockets and replacement G9 7.5 watt LED COB bulbs available for any re-wire for California or other strict new energy saving building code use.
So many elements working together for a fantastic result.
Width: 6 ¾"
Projection: 9 ½" from the wall into the room.
Metal...brass/bronze cast metal. The finish is silverized, with dark accents (like oxidation)...and if desired, can be buffed off.
Glass...amber, remarkable condition.
Changes: Mounting backplate; G-9 sockets added; G9 7.5 watt LED COB bulbs included.
$1,250.00 for a very nice, complete & rewired pair of French sconces in original condition (except for the addition of state-of-the-art LED lights, which are included)...plus careful shipping.
