Description

I’m very pleased to offer FOUR 1920s silvery sconces by Riddle.

This listing is for FOUR matching fixtures.

I’ve no idea what style the sconces are! I’ve never seen anything quite like them! I do know however that they’re utterly fabulous and would look great in an Arts & Crafts style home or bungalow.

The sconces retain their highly distinctive original polychrome. This is mostly silver, with accents of dark gold, blue, and red. Stunning. So incredibly luscious. The arm is brown.

Only one candle cover was in situ when I purchased the set, and it was badly damaged. It was though…brown. Yet another unusual aspect! So, I painted the new candle covers brown!

Please note the distinctive original mounting buttons! It’s amazing that they remain!

The wiring is new, and cloth covered like the original. Nice.

Wholly restored and with new sockets and wiring, this fixture is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!

DETAILS:
The fixtures accept standard base 60W bulbs (not included). Edison-style clear LED bulbs would look well.
Each sconce has an on/off switch. As I don’t trust old switches I deactivated these. If this feature is important please contact me.
COLOR: See above.
SIZE: The sconces are about 8-inches high and 4-3/8-inches wide. They project 6-3/4-inches.
CONDITION:
I love writing this: there’s no damage.
The sockets and wiring are new.
The candle covers are new.
The polychrome is original and only required minor touching up.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
