ANT-1085  Lovely Pair of Circa 1920 Wall Sconces. Original Antique Backplates with Original Antique Shades

These sconces have a formal Edwardian ambiance having a pewter look but with a more restrained backplate design that is so typical of the Edwardian design style. Almost reminds you of an Art Nouveau, but, not quite.

The original antique shades are simply unique and the center design matches the design of the metal backplate...a very nice set. We believe the shades to be English as they are made of the finest glass, and then, hand decorated with a bit of decal and “hand” painted designs. We also believe the shades to be English since the mounting hole has a metal adapter to convert the hole normally used in England for their “in England” bayonet pin socket, to our American method of slip-in shades used at this time. Being antiques, there is a place “or two” where there are very MINOR flakes to the shades. It is normal 90 year wear-tear and so very minor, but we have to mention it.

The metal, of the backplates, is cast zinc and aluminum with a lovely pewter finish. Ready to go...nothing needs to be done except add the light bulbs of your choice. These sconces have been completely re-wired, in our UL shop, with true bakelite sockets and all new wire. We have also replaced the switches, made by Leviton in the 20’s.

Measurements:  The Overall sconce height is 10”. The maximum width is 4 3/4”. It will project into the room, from the wall 5 1/2”.

Price for the pair: $ 395.00 for the pair of sconces plus shades... plus shipping
