This is a fabulous pair of antique double-arm sconces, signed by their maker, Markel Electric Products, and dating from the 1920’s. These cast iron sconces are crowned with foliate volutes, and each back plate features a magnificent sunburst with a simple round button in the center. The back plate comes down into a double arm, accented in the center by a diamond-shaped sunburst with a geometric pattern. Below, the sconce finishes in a volute and foliate design. The end of each arm finishes in a miniature sunburst and supports a bobeche with cutout foliate detail. These wall lamps are in excellent condition; they have been professionally rewired and come with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. We kept the original nonfunctioning turn switches for nostalgia’s sake; however, we will gladly replace them with new ones if desired. The sconces measure 11 ½” tall, 4 5/8” wide, and protrude 5 ½” from the wall.
