Streamline Art Deco Lighting Slip Shade Wall Sconces Circa Mid 1930s (ANT-540)

ANT-540  Antique Art Deco Streamline Design Slip Shade Sconces

Art Deco Streamline design is presented with this pair of sconces.  Circa 1936 or so, they are iconic for Streamline design and minimalism in lighting.

Often confused with commercial sconces, they do have that minimal function that could be confused...however...matches well with other simple Streamline designs.

While the sconce frames have been thoroughly cleaned, there is some deterioration to the metal BEHIND the shades.  This reflects their age, and probably the way they were stored for 60 to 80 years.  Luckily...the visible parts of these sconces are maintained rather well.

The heavy, thick shades are amber in color, and in great condition.


  • Height:  8 ½"
  • Width:  5"
  • Projection:  3 ¾" from the wall into the room.

We have rewired these sconces to UL American standards with new sockets in our UL shop.  We also replaced the rotary switches at the bottom of the sconce.  So, these are ready to hang with a standard light mounting kit, which we will also supply.

Sockets are rated for up to 100 watts, but we recommend a conservative 60 - 65 watts if incandescent light bulbs will be used.  This will help protect the fragile slip shades from excessive heat, which could potentially damage them.  If more light is needed, compact fluorescent or LED light bulbs are a good substitute...these efficient bulbs operate at cooler temperatures, but emit more lumens per watt consumed.  Our LED light bulbs are great for light fixtures that will be used for ambient lighting, rather than the main source of light.  Each bulb uses only about 2 watts of electricity, but are equivalent to a 25 watt incandescent bulb.

Price:  $650.00 for this great pair of UL rewired sconces, with their great Streamline design and amber slip shipping charges.
