ANT-586 Late Art Deco Pair of Sconces Circa 1938
Nice pair of wall sconces. Original antique backplates, and original antique shades.
These sconces have a close-to-Streamline appearance. The dark pewter color backplates have nice simple accents, but the more restrained design is so typical of the late Deco style, i.e. more like Streamline Art Deco.
The shades are a nice embossed design glass, with semi-opaque and clear glass, and a small pattern running along the top border. They match the straight line ambiance of the fixtures quite well. They are in excellent condition.
Width: 6 ¾" (including the shade)
Projection: 8" from the wall into the room.
Ready to go...nothing needs to be done except add the light bulbs of your choice. These sconces have been completely re-wired with new sockets and all new wire in our UL listed workshop. Please note that the switches for these lights are directly below the shades. They are part of the socket, and make an integral part of the light. They are a rotary style Deco switch used from about 1910 onward.
We suggest using our neat little LED bulb if these sconces are more for ambiance, and less for full room light. This little 2 watt bulb produces almost as much light as a 25 watt incandescent bulb, but only nibbles at the electricity. AND...it lasts 30,000 hours.
$350.00 for the complete re-wired, UL approved pair of sconces...plus careful packaging and shipping.
