Edwardian GREAT Set of Three 1920-30 Wall Sconces (ANT-1209)

ANT-1209  Edwardian GREAT Set of Three 1920-30 Wall Sconces

Mixed metal construction with very effective results. While the shield style backplate is cast iron and finished with a pewter finish, the arms and other elements are solid brass with a lovely antique brass finish. The contrast is rather striking. These are antiques. And as such, they will have some minor bumps and bruises but nothing that a true antiquer would worry about.

The shades are ruby cut glass. We need to state “CUT” glass....NOT imitation cut glass. The color is rich and the cutting is very nice indeed. While we had and sold single arm sconces with this great shade before, this is the first offering of double arm sconces we have had. Kind of hard to find.

With a strong bulb, they give an ambiance that is just lovely. We have seen these long shades lit with a nice tubular bulb for light along the entire shade and it is just beautiful. Not easy to find quality like this.

We took our picture with a mere 15 watt bulb so the camera lens would focus on the entire sconce and shade detail... not get blown out by a too strong bulb.

These sconces have been completely re-wired in our UL shop with new medium base, normal, sockets and all new wire. They also have new rotary off/on switches which are re-creations of the original switches and work well.

We will also supply an adapter that changes a medium base socket into a chandelier socket...totally removeable like a light bulb...so that, if desired, a nice chandelier effect bulb could be used. We will supply a neat chandelier bulb which WE think is nice...but.. you can change it back to a medium size socket..as easily as changing a light bulb. A mounting kit will also be supplied.

Measurements: The Overall sconce height is an impressive 12”. The maximum width is 11”. It will project into the room, from the wall  5 1/2”.

Price for the SET of three: $1,450.00 plus careful packing and shipping. We will not see just a pair. It would be a shame to break-up this full 3 piece array.
