ANT-252  Art Deco - Lovely Pair of 1920s Art Deco Wall Sconces

Original antique sconces, with an original poly-chrome coloring...although...like a good oriental carpet, it is subdued and mellow, and even has some wear.  The finish is in pretty good condition for all this time, though it probably could be brightened up.  However, we like antiques to look like antiques, so will leave it to the next owner to make that final finish decision.

The shades are really quite subdued, and do not detract from the lovely poly-chrome backplates. With a strong bulb, they give an ambiance that is quite antique.  We took our picture with a 15 watt bulb so the camera would focus on the light and shade detail...not get blown out by too strong of a bulb.

Measurements:

  • Height:  9 ¾" overall.
  • Width:  4 ½" (maximum)
  • Projection:  5" from the wall into the room.
  • Backplate Footprint:  8" tall x 4 ¼" wide.

These sconces have been completely rewired in our UL shop with new sockets and all new wire. We have also replaced the rotary switches, made by Leviton in the 20s and still made up to three years ago.  So these switches are becoming even more antique as we note this.

Price for the pair:  $350.00 plus careful packing and shipping.
