Edwardian French Art Nouveau Sconces (ANT-313)
ANT-313  Edwardian French Art Nouveau Sconces
 
Pair of unusual and striking quality sconces... Circa 1910.
 
Nickel plating and age are giving these pleasant sconces a generous mellow look of nickel and brass subtle hues.  Some ways you look at them and you can see the brass coming thru...other ways ...the nickel is predominant.  Age and use and years of polishing all have added their ambient touches.
 
The shades are our fine hand cut models that are sold usually with upscale lighting due to their labor intensive craftsmanship and price.  They are simply lovely and speak volumes about quality.
 
Electrical:  These sconces have been totally re-wired in our UL shop.  We went a step further with the sockets.  We used lathe turned, screwed together, high end sockets since the shade is directly supported by them. The sockets take every day normal bulbs and 100 watts bulbs are quite accepted.  We did use some adapters as well to change from a french thread to an American thread.
 
These sconces mount with a normal crossbar (supplied) using two decorated nickel ball fasteners.  The crossbar mounts to a normal electrical box.  All mounting hardware will be supplied as shown.  
 
Measurements:  18 1/2” tall from the top of the top tube to the bottom of the backplate.   Widest part is the canopy which measures a 5” diameter.  Projects into the room 8” after mounted onto the wall.
 
Price for the re-wired pair, complete with cut glass shades: $ 750.00 as shown.   Careful packing and shipping is a bit extra.
