1930s slip-shade sconces by Lightolier THREE
1 in stock
I’m very pleased to offer THREE matching 1930s slip-shade sconces by the incomparable Lightolier Company!
This listing is for three matching fixtures.
The glass shades have stunning floral designs. Wow.
The back-plates have a coppery finish.
Under each shade is an incredible filigree support.
Beginning in the 1920s, and for many decades thereafter, the Lightolier Company (extant today of course) made some of the very finest fixtures. Their designs were always simply dazzling, and the quality was the very very very best. When you restore vintage lights such as I do, these aspects are so obvious they tend to jump out. It’s always a particular pleasure restoring a Lightolier!

When the sconces were made they would have been about twice the price of comparable fixtures by other lighting companies. This premium was for the quality, design, and the Lightolier name. Kinda like the difference between a Chevy and a Rolls-Royce. This premium still applies today.

- Each fixture accepts one standard base 60W bulb (not included).
- The sockets have pull-chains.
