Art Deco Set of 4 Antique Wall Sconces with Slip Shades by Halcolite (ANT-521)

ANT-521  Set of FOUR Art Deco Slip Shade Wall Sconces by Halcolite

Halcolite was one of select slip shade light makers who made some high end quality products. They used Consolidated glass products and designs quite a bit to give their glassware a lovely accent.

Halcolite was located in Brooklyn, New York at 68 34th Street.  According to their catalog T for the year 1937-38, these sconces were part of the Somerset Series, which only had four items in it...a five light chandelier in two configurations; a 3 light chandelier; and these sconces.  That's it.

The shades are light amber (that Halcolite called golden-toned), and in good...remarkable...condition.

These sconces have been completely re-wired in our UL shop with new sockets and rotary switches.  The sockets can easily handle 100 watts.  However, if incandescent bulbs are to be used, we recommend no higher than 60 - 65 watts to protect the antique glass shades from excessive heat.  If greater light output is needed, we recommend using energy efficient compact fluorescent or LED light bulbs.  These types of bulbs emit less heat.

Measurements:

  • Height:  9" overall.
  • Width:  5 ¾" maximum.
  • Projection:  4 ¾" from the wall into the room.

All mounting hardware will be supplied.

$1,475.00 for the complete UL re-wired set of four antique Halcolite sconces with original golden-toned shades...plus shipping.
