These are truly finely crafted theater lights.  We bought original antique theater lights from the Loew's Delancey Theatre, built in 1926 - 1927 at 140-146 Delancey Street in New York City (Thomas W. Lamb Inc. - Architect).  We sold the lights quite readily to many knowledgeable collectors and decorators.  We simply loved these lights, and even though they presented an incredible array of duplication issues, we went ahead and made them after two years of molds, dies, and a touch of frustration.

The cases are solid brass/bronze construction.  The center elongated lens is an extruded acrylic with the Loew's traditional and original pattern.  The bottom half-disc is also acrylic, and supported by a solid glass ball held in place with a solid brass cap disk.  A bottom switch is added for convenience.

We are delighted with this theater sconce, and know you would be too.  In our of the best ones out there.


  • Height:  23" tall from the top of the light to the bottom of the finial.
  • Width:
    • Overall:  5 ¾" wide at the bottom acrylic half-disk.
    • Brass Body:  5" wide.
  • Projection:  4" from the wall into the room, so it can also be ADA compliant.

Wiring Options:  Two wiring options are available.  The first option is a traditional incandescent wiring, which has a medium base twin socket that can be used with either incandescent or LED bulbs.  The second option is a dimming LED version for California customers who comply with Title 24, or other energy-minded folks who are now moving towards the LED mindset.  For this option, the sconce is wired with a 2G11 socket to use with a dimmable LED tube.  Choose between 2700°K for that incandescent warm yellow...or...5000°K for bright white.

Please Note:  if choosing the LED version...make sure you also get an LED dimmer switch. Incandescent dimmer switches don't work with LEDs very well...they produce noise, which no LED IC chip likes.
