Art Deco Streamline Wall Sconces Early Modernist Virden Antique Lights (ANT-592)

ANT-592  American Art Deco STREAMLINE Sconces by Virden

Cast 1939 signed Art Deco sconces that are in the Virden catalog #39 (i.e. 1939 as the catalog number reflected the year it was published).  These sconces were item 6001 from the Carleton Series.  Virden bragged:  Underwriters Approved.

The shades have the typical Streamline concentric rings, which are so very iconic of Streamline design.  The shade colors are all original, and near mint.

The metal finish is pewter, and there is a touch of roughness to the frames...not serious...but as cast, and 1930s produced.

Measurements:

  • Height:  7 ½" from the top of the shade to the bottom of the metal backplate.
  • Width:  7" (widest)
  • Projection:  4" from the wall into the room.

Electrical:  These sconces have been totally re-wired in our UL shop.  Normal bakelite sockets for everyday medium base bulbs were installed.  The sconces have a rotary switch for on and off. Each sconce mounts with one normal sconce mounting all-thread to a normal electrical box from within the case.  All mounting hardware will be supplied.

Price:  $850.00 for the pair, plus careful packing and shipping.
