Description

I’m very pleased to offer this extraordinary opportunity:
SEVEN 1920s Spanish-Revival sconces!

This listing is for SEVEN fixtures.

The sconces came from a house in Los Angeles. While all are from the same set, they have three different finishes. This wasn’t unusual for the era, as lighting companies normally offered a range of finishes, and buyers could select X finish for their living room, and Y finish for the foyer, and so on.

The sconces are all cast brass, and beautifully detailed.

In the first image, starting on top:
TWO 1-arm sconces. These have a gold varnish over the brass.
ONE 1-arm sconce. This matches the above, although the back plate is, curiously, slightly different.
TWO 2-arm sconces with a gold polychrome.
TWO 2-arm sconces with a dark silver polychrome.

The sconces are not yet restored. They will be shipped fully restored. The finishes will all be cleaned, and the sockets and wiring will be new.

NOTE: You could have the set refinished in, say, matte black or bronze.

This set will be shipped ready to hang, and with all the mounting hardware needed!

DETAILS:
The fixtures accept standard base 60W bulbs (not included). Clear flame-style LED bulbs would look well.
The single 1-arm sconce has an on/off switch. As I don’t trust old switches I deactivated this. If this feature is important please contact me.
The mounting buttons are replacements.
COLOR: See above.
SIZE:
The 1-arm sconces are 10-inches high (minus bulb) and a bit shy of 4-wide. They project 6-1/2-inches.
The 2-arm sconces are also 10-high (minus bulbs), and 10-wide. They project 5-inches.
CONDITION:
I love writing this: there’s no damage.
The sockets and wiring are new.
The candle covers are new.
The finishes are in good vintage condition, with but small bit of loss, minor scuffs, and obvious age.
SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
