Victorian Wall Sconce - Neo Rococo Starr-Fellows 1 Arm (902-1ARM)

902-1ARM  Polished Unlacquered Brass Neo Rococo Victorian Recreated Gaslight Sconce

902-1ARM-DK  Antique Brass Finish Neo Rococo Victorian Reproduction Gaslight Wall Sconce

Early American Rococo gas lighting fixtures are very rare nowadays.  There are only 5 catalogs that are known to have existed between 1840 and 1870.  We have been fortunate enough to find no less than 8 original light fixtures of various sizes and configurations that were originally manufactured by Starr, Fellows.  We recast from these original fixtures for a completely accurate reproduction.

These were high end fixtures even 100 years ago.  This single sconce is made out of heavy solid brass, compared to Starr & Fellows' later, thinner lights.  Our recasting is from the heavier fixture.

Shown in polished brass, we also offer custom hand-finishing to an antique brass.  Use the Options menu above to select your favorite.

Measurements:

Height:  25"

Backplate:   9" x 5"

Projection:   17 ½"

Wattage:  One socket, UL approved for up to 100 watts incandescent.

Shade sold separately.  Fixture uses a 2 58" fitter glass shade, or you may use your own antique shade.  We offer 11 shades in this size to choose from.  The shade on the fixture pictured here is a cut crystal trumpet shade.

If you'd like an On/Off switch added to the base, we offer custom installation for $25.00.  Please click "Yes" in the "Add Switch?" menu above to add the switch to your cart.

We delight in the Rococo lighting era.  Pictured here also are only a few favorites to complement this sconce.  Start with a small gaslight antique chandelier, with a cupid standing in the center.  For more ornamentation, try a 6-light chandelier by Starr-Fellows.  A stair or hallway light with up to 500 wattage is the matching rococo newel post light.
