ANT-475  Pair of Art Deco Antique Polychrome Wall Sconces from the Victorian Line by Gill

Gill was a bit of an Art Deco rebel.  He did not like angular Art Deco lines.  He actually wrote papers criticizing the departure from traditional Victorian/Edwardian lines to what he considered a lazy design with straight lines.  (Courtesy of Kelly Art Deco Light Museum) we have a pair of his sconces that in his catalog, circa 1935, were actually named the Victorian Line.  You can see some great pictures on page 312, in Book I, Lighting Fixtures of the Depression Era by Jo Ann Thomas.  While there are mistakes in her books...the catalog pages are still neat to see.

The condition of these Gill sconces is simply wonderful.  The ORIGINAL polychrome colors are just that...original...and only so gently cleaned up.  They are really GOOD!! The shades are amber in color, and in very respectable condition.  Don't like where Gill Co. put the mold separation of the shade...right down the center...but that is original not much we can do about it.  Still, a remarkable conditioned pair of truly antique...near-mint condition...Gill sconces.

We have rewired these sconces to UL standards with new sockets in our UL shop.   Each sconce has a rotary switch.  So,these are ready to hang with a standard light mounting kit which we will supply.


  • Height:  10 58"
  • Width:  5 ½"
  • Projection:  6 ½" from the wall into the room.

Uses either incandescent or LED light bulbs.  We do not supply the bulbs, but our LED bulb 45-E26B is available for purchase.  It is only 1.6 watts, and presents itself as a fantastic look.   Most folks think that a 25 watt bulb is installed.   Makes using these as night lights very inexpensive indeed.

Price:  $850.00 for the pair with their original shades, plus shipping charges.
