Lovely pair of Circa 1920 wall sconces (ANT-273)
ANT-273

Lovely pair of Circa 1920 wall sconces.  Original antique sconces with orginal Art Glass antique shades.

These sconces have a lovely Edwardian pewter look and a great design that is so typical of the Edwardian style.

The original antique shades are also so very nice.  They are an ivory color with clear applied art glass touches to each side.  Tall shades and the design on the art glass shades seems to match the shapes found in the metal backplate.  A nice combination indeed. 

The metal, of the backplates, is cast metal with a lovely pewter finish.  Ready to go...nothing needs to be done except add the light bulbs of your choice.    We would recommend our LED candleabrum bulbs, 35C-E26 if you wish ambiant light rather than full room power.  The ambiance of these is warm and draw so little electricity (1.6 watts)  that we have known folks that leave them on 24/7.  The bulbs do have an expected life of 25 - 30,000 hours.

These sconces have been completely re-wired with new sockets and all new wire.  We have also replaced the switches, made by Leviton in the 20’s...and still made up to ONE year ago.  So these switches, by Leviton are becomming even more antique as we note this.  A special decor knob is used with these old style Leviton switches.

Measurements:  The Overall sconce height is 11”.  The maximum width (shade) is  5”.  It will project into the room, from the wall  5”.
