Art Deco Americana Wall Sconces Pair of Antique Slip Shade Lights (ANT-784)

ANT-784  Antique Pair of Art Deco Wall Sconces Attributed to Riddle Co. & Consolidated Glass

Lovely Pair of Americana Slip Shade sconces.  Castings can be attributed to Riddle Co., who favored designs such as these and worked in the same metal.

The marvelous shades simply must be by Consolidated Lamp & Glass Co., who were the absolute best.  Consolidated Lamp & Glass Co. of Coraopolis, 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.  They made outstanding consumer products, i.e. vases, bowls etc., and most outstanding shades and lighting.  And everything that they made was the absolute BEST quality America had to offer to the world.

This pair of sconces is elaborating designs from the French Exposition Des Arts Decoratifs of 1925. An interesting note about these sconces is that they were made to compete against similar sconces made by Virden 1030-5.  Virden had a similar pair of sconces which are now more common than these sconces, but we think that these sconces are far superior to the Virden design. These sconces are circa between 1931 and 1936.

Measurements:

  • Height:  9" overall.
  • Width:  7" overall.
  • Projection:  5" from the wall into the room.

These sconces have been completely re-wired, in our UL shop, with new sockets to conform to UL guidelines.  Each socket is capable of accepting a 100 watt bulb...but...we would recommend
LED bulbs to protect the now older glass shades.

Remarkable and very unusual sconces, UL re-wired:  $950.00...plus careful shipping.
