This is a beautiful antique Neoclassical single-arm sconce, dating from the early 1900’s, in its original silver plate over bronze. The sconce begins with an elegant loop finial atop an urn; below, the sconce features a round backplate with foliate accents. A graceful band of twisted vines, showing distinct Art Nouveau influences, runs across the center of the backplate; below, the arm receiver bowl is ornamented with a pair of leaves springing from volutes. A smooth, J-shaped arm extends from the base of the backplate to support a bobeche ornamented with the same elegant vine design found on the backplate. This wall lamp is in excellent condition; it has been professionally rewired and comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. The sconce measures 5” wide, 12 ½” tall, and has a projection of 6 ½”. A matching double-arm sconce (shown in one picture) is listed separately under item # NSP474-RW.
