Twenties Era Wall Sconces...a Pair

ART DECO-Modernism


Designer VerificationNone

Lovely set of circa 1920's Neo-Rococo style wall sconces. Original antique sconces with amazing shell motif antique amber shades. These sconces have a lovely before-Depression pewter look and a great Rococo design that is such a sophisticated look. Those backplates are just so busy! The amber shell motif shades are so very nice. They are a deep cast glass, with deep pattern relief, which is nicely shaped. Admirable is how the shapes are all tied together. The metal of the backplates is cast metal, with a lovely hi/lo pewter finish. Ready to go...nothing needs to be done except add the light bulbs of your choice. We would recommend our LED bulbs, 45G-E26, if you wish ambient light rather than full room power. The shade is of a low type and these bulbs would fit perfectly. The ambiance of these bulbs is warm, and they draw so little electricity (1.6 watts) that we have known folks that leave them on 24/7. The bulbs do have an expected life of 25,000 - 30,000 hours. Measurements: 9 1/2" tall by 4 1/2" wide overall, including the shades. Each sconce projects 6" from the wall. The backplate alone measures 9 1/2" tall by 4" wide.
