Lovely pair of Circa 1920 wall sconces. Original antique sconces with original Art Glass antique shades.
These sconces have a lovely Edwardian pewter look and a great design that is so typical of the Edwardian style.
The original antique shades are also so very nice. They are an ivory color with clear applied art glass touches to each side. Tall shades and the design on the art glass shades seems to match the shapes found in the metal backplate. A nice combination indeed.
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 that leave them on 24/7. The bulbs do have an expected life of 25,000 - 30,000 hours.
However,,,if a stronger light is desired....we suggest a tubular S-10 bulb which is the same kind of tubular bulb often used in desk lamps. It gives a balanced light for this longer shade.
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 1/2”. The maximum width (shade) is 4 1/2”. It will project into the room, from the wall 6 1/4”. The backplate, by itself, measures 11” tall by 4 1/2”.
Price for the pair: $375.00 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.
