These impressive antique wall statements are 40” tall. They are also 17 1/2” wide (shade tip to shade tip) and will project into the room 10” to 13" depending on which shade you measure.

Each sconce weighs in at about 30 pounds.

We completely re-wired these french sconces and removed the french sockets to convert them to our American bulbs and current.

The mounting of these sconces is more unique than normal. That shield medallion, on the backplate between the four arms, hides the main mounting device. The medallion itself is held onto the backplate by one slotted ball-screw just visible in the picture. Behind the medallion, the mounting device uses a large bore 3/8 nps all-thread to a heavy duty specially made crossbar which we will supply. A completely sophisticated mounting and finish for a great pair of french antique sconces.

We think these are an excellent choice for an area needing a significant pair of sconces.

This fixture comes complete with our neat little candle style 35C-E26 LED bulb. This little 2 watt bulb produces almost as much light as a 25 watt incandescent bulb but only nibbles at the electricity. lasts 30,000 hours. We naturally carry replacements if an accident, or a matching option, deems necessary at some time in the future.
