Lovely Pair of Circa 1930 Wall Sconces (ANT-238) - For Sale
Lovely Pair of Circa 1930 Wall Sconces (ANT-238)
Lovely pair of Circa 1930 wall sconces. Original backplates and original shades.
Old gold painted cases with touches of old nickel elaborations at the bottom.
The metal of the backplates is cast metal and then finished with old gold. The installed panel is so unusual and, while we have one of these in the museum, attribution has escaped us. Best guess has been Moe Bridges. Very neat for originality.
These sconces have been completely re-wired with true bakelite sockets and all new wire. We have also replaced the switches, made by Leviton in the 20's...and still made up to two years ago. So these switches by Leviton are becoming even more rare as we note this.
Measurements: The Overall sconce height is 8". The maximum width is 7 1/2". It will project into the room from the wall, a mere 3".
