Nice pair of Circa 1920 wall sconces. Original “hammered effect” pewter finished sconces with crackle ground and floral shades.
These sconces have a lovely Edwardian pewter look and a great design that is so typical of the Edwardian Arts & Crafts style.
The original antique shades are also so very nice. They have a clear ban at the top with a floral motif and a crackle color below the ban. Very attractive.
The metal of the backplates, is cast metal with a lovely pewter finish. Ready to go...nothing needs to be done except add the light bulbs of your choice. We would recommend our LED candelabrum bulbs, 35C-E26 if you wish ambient light rather than full room power. The ambiance of these bulbs is warm and they draw so little electricity (1.6 watts) that we have known folks who leave them on 24/7. The bulbs do have an expected life of 25,000 - 30,000 hours.
These sconces have been completely re-wired in our UL shop with new sockets and all new wire. We have also replaced the rotary switches, made by Leviton in the 20’s...and were still made up to ONE year ago. So these switches by Leviton are becoming even more antique as we note this.
Measurements: The overall sconce height is 11”. The maximum width (shade) is 5 1/2”. It will project into the room, from the wall 7 1/2”. The backplate, by itself, measures 11” tall by 4”.
Price for the complete pair: $350.00 plus $20.00 for careful packing and ground shipping within the contiguous 48 states. Residents of Alaska/Hawaii and International Customers, please call 360-379-9030 for a shipping quote.
