Pair of Circa 1920 Wall Sconces (ANT-237) - For Sale
Pair of Circa 1920 Wall Sconces (ANT-237)
Lovely pair of Circa 1920 wall sconces. Original antique backplates and orginal antique shades.
These sconces have a formal Edwardian ambiance having a pewter look but with a more restrained backplate design that is so typical of the Edwardian design style.
The shades are simple opal and match the straight line ambiance of the fixtures quite well. They are in excellent condition.
The metal, of the backplates, is cast in zinc and aluminum 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 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 ONE year ago. So these switches, by Leviton are becomming even more antique as we note this.
Sconces are 9" tall with a 4 1/4" width at the fullest point. Protrusion is 5 3/4".
