ART DECO-Modernism


Designer VerificationNone

Circa 1930s, these sconces are finished in an oil rubbed bronze (near black) finish with brass highlites. They have an interesting opal shade with a clear waffle glass panel for that extra bit of light. An interesting thing about that waffle panel is that the shade does spin in it’s fitter so the waffle panel can be turned sideways to focus more light on a face if the sconces were put to each side of a mirror. For that matter, the waffle can also be turned 180º to face the wall if it ever got to be annoying for some reason.

Electrical: These sconces have been totally re-wired in our UL shop. Normal bakelite sockets for everyday medium base bulbs. The backplate has a rotary switch for on and off. The sconce mounts with one normal sconce mounting all-thread to a normal electrical box from within the case. All mounting hardware will be supplied.
