These two matching pairs of ca 1920's classic Lincoln Co. iron sconces display exemplary casting, a natural patina, and a chocolate brown color. The upper part of the ornate back plate showcases a loop-style cut-out, which is bordered in decorative beads. Above the loop is a cast posy-style floret surrounded by foliage, which runs down either side. The uniquely shaped back plate is raised in the center, displaying a utilitarian floret button and lined by corresponding foliate details. The body of the back plate displays faux-hammering, cast curls and florets, and finishes in a bottom cut-out styled loop also beaded. Each of the two sconce arms is made of bent and curled iron bands, which display earth-tone finishes and are buttoned to the back plate with florets. The end of each arm supports a petal-cup bobeche, making these the most endearing sconces. 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 nonfunctional antique turn switches for nostalgia’s sake; however, we would gladly replace them with new ones if so desired. These are 10 ¾” long, 8” wide and protrude 4 ½” from the wall. A part of almost identical sconces can be found at #NSP206-rw or #NSP230-rw. The price listed is for one pair; there is now only one pair available.
