Lovely pair of Neoclassical brass one-arm sconces with original glass shades, salvaged out of Indianapolis, circa 1920s. These versatile sconces can be mounted with the shade facing either upward or downward, as pictured. Each sconce features an elegant backplate with a rope and ribbon border, and repeating flower and leaf details. A beautiful foliate arm receiver bowl supports a U-shaped arm that attaches to a simple brass fitter. The fitter supports an original bell-shaped glass shade with stripes, gadrooning, and a scalloped edge. These wall lamps are in excellent condition with no cracks or breaks to the glass; just the expected fleabites around the edges. The sconces have been professionally rewired and come with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. They measure 4-3/4” wide, 8" tall, and have a 6" projection.
