Superb Antique Gas & Electric Brass Sconce with Glass Shade, 19th Century NSP565
A marvelous antique single-arm brass Arts & Crafts sconce, dating from the late 1800’s, originally half gas and half electric (now fully converted to electricity). The sconce features a square brass backplate with a squared arm supporting a candelabra-style light at the top with a rectangular gas key, and a frosted glass shade below. This wall lamp is in excellent condition; it has been professionally rewired and comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. The glass is also in excellent condition with no cracks or breaks, just the expected fleabites around the rim. The sconce measures approx. 5” wide overall, 14” tall, and has a projection of 7 ½”.
