Martele-Style Triple Sconce (613-TRP)

613-TRP  Martelé-Style Triple Sconce

Perhaps the finest recreation of a triple shade Art Deco Sconce that exists today.  This is even more rare than the single shade sconce that uses the same shade (613-MES).

Our company loves Art Deco. Hence the creators of the only Art Deco Lighting Museum, in the world, for American makers.

And for years we have wanted to take one of the finest single shade sconces ever made...and recreate it. But, the glassware was so prohibitively expensive, that we had to delay...until now. Here’s the story of this sconce:

Consolidated Lamp & Glass Co of Corapolis, PA was one of America’s finest glass makers before and during the Great Depression. Unfortunately....Consolidated went bankrupt no less than three times during the Great Depression.

The original antique triple sconce was came up at a collector’s auction but without the shades. No one knew what shade went to this totally un-documented frame until the curator of our museum saw it...stood motionless and amazed and pronounced his opinion and logic behind the design. His final words of wisdom was...”buy it!!”

He knew...but was amazed...that in 40+ years of collecting, it had never been seen.

We know that Consolidated was in cooperation with the Art Deco fixture maker Moe Bridges. The only literature about the SINGLE sconce was a hand drawing in a simple flyer. Nothing about this fixture...nothing about chandeliers or pendants...they had only achieved a single sconce when Consolidated got into trouble during the depression. And then...went bankrupt. We were fortunate to have a few antique examples of the single sconce which we sold to maintain our museum.

That original, jaw-dropping 3-shade sconce is now in our museum...but...before that restoration for display, we made a poured silicon mold and this recreated sconce is the result.

Pretty rare event...very rare offering...all to benefit our museum.

The glassware Design comes from Consolidated’s “Martelé Line” and this recreated triple shade sconce probably comes from Moe Bridges with the assumption that the documented cooperation continued. The original antique was brass/bronze, so this recreation is also brass/bronze with an antique finish.

Overall Light Measurements: 24 1/2” tall by 14” wide. It projects into a room 5 1/2”.

We wired this triple sconce so each socket is capable of accepting a 100 watt bulb.

Remarkable Consolidated/Moe Bridges recreated triple sconce. We believe it is hard to find a better triple sconce in the world today.

This stunning triple sconce: $1,750.00 each sconce...plus careful shipping.
