Late Art Deco Streamline Style Pair of Antique Sconces Circa 1938 (ANT-357) - For Sale
Late Art Deco Streamline Style Pair of Antique Sconces Circa 1938 (ANT-357)
Lovely pair of wall sconces. Original antique backplates and original antique shades.
These sconces have a close-to-Streamline appearance, with a slightly earlier Deco touch to the bottom of the backplates. The pewter color backplates have nice brass accents, but the more restrained backplate design is so typical of the late Deco design style, i.e. more like Streamline Art Deco.
The shades are a nice reeded custard glass, with small beads running along with the reeding. They match the straight line ambiance of the fixtures quite well. They are in excellent condition.
The metal of the backplates is cast iron, with a lovely pewter finish. Ready to go...nothing needs to be done except add the light bulbs of your choice. These sconces have been completely re-wired with new sockets and all new wire in our UL listed workshop.
Please note that the switches for these lights are directly below the shades. They are part of the socket, and make an integral part of the light. They are a rotary style deco switch used from about 1910 onward.
Measurements: The overall sconce height is 8 1/2”. The maximum width (which is the shade) is 6”. It will project into the room from the wall 7”. The backplate measures 4 1/2” wide by 8 1/2” tall.
$325.00 for the complete pair... plus $25.00 for careful packaging and shipping within the contiguous 48 states.
