Art Deco Odeon Style British Motif Theater Sconces (ANT-966)

ANT-966  Art Deco “Odeon” Style British Motif Theater Sconces

A very neat shell motif set of the British theater sconces from England. These sconces are often called "Odeon Sconces" since one of the main movie house chains in Britain, named all their theaters "Odeon". The sconces vary in style...most popular was the shell motif while these have a real feeling of more Art Deco style “line” decor.

The sconces are mounted in Nickel Plated frames. The shades do have some minor scuffing from age and we took one picture to show you this condition commensurate with their age. The shades are a pleasant amber color.

“Odeon”

...is sometimes is a synonymous term for a movie theater in Britain. Saying “let’s go to the Odeon” ..is the same as saying, “let’s go to the movies”.

These types of sconces were often used with frosted, amber and even pink tinted shades around the turn of the century. However, this design shows more of a Deco influence and we would date these to the 1930s. In older British theaters, you can still see them existing where they have been for over 3/4s of a century or more. We have rewired these sconces to UL American standards with new American medium base sockets in our UL shop.

So, these are ready to hang with an American standard light mounting kit which we will supply.

This pair of sconces is larger than the normal Odeon sea shell designed sconces and do have that different pattern to them as well. They do have a more Streamline Deco look than the older sea shell motif. They are also larger.

Measurements:  9 1/2" tall with a width of also 12 1/2". Protrudes 7" into the room.

Uses either incandescent or LEDs (as shown in our picture). We do not supply the bulbs but the LED bulb.

Price:  $ 650 for the pair (with minor scuffing) with shades plus shipping charges.
