1 in stock
I’m very pleased to offer this wonderful set of 1930s fixtures by the famous PORCELIER Company!
This listing is for:
ONE 3-bulb surface-mounted ceiling fixture!
TWO matching wall sconces!
For many decades, Porcelier made some of the finest lighting fixtures and house wares (they closed in the 1950s). There’s a book on their work:

This set is one of their best designs. The shape and proportions are just perfect. But the roses! The roses! Look at the amazing level of detail and richness of color! Wow!
I love the custard glass shades on the sconces.
The set is ideal for a bathroom, powder room, small bedroom, or kitchen.
Of particular note are the original Porcelier porcelain socket rings on the 3-bulb (sooooo distinctive). And don’t miss the striking gold detailing on all the fixtures! All the mounting finials are also original. Nice.
The sconces have pull-chains. These almost never work, although they do on this set. However, I strongly urge that the sconces be controlled by a wall switch as I can offer no guarantee on the pull-chain mechanisms.
Wholly restored and with new wiring, this set is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!
The fixtures accept standard-base 60W bulbs (not included).
Each sconce has an electrical outlet on the very bottom. As these are not modern GFI safety outlet, I deactivated these.
COLOR: The main bodies are a creamy white. The color of the roses is pink. There are soft green leaves, and some pale yellow and pale blue flowers. Brilliant gold trim.
The 3-bulb fixture hangs down about 3-1/2-inches (not including bulbs) and is 10-1/2-inches wide.
The sconces are 8-inches high (including pull-chain, but not including bulb), about 4-3/4-inches wide, and each projects about 5-inches.
There are subtle manufacturing irregularities. This is normal.
The Porcelier sockets are original with new wiring.
The flowers are near mint.
Overall, the gold is very good with only some minor wear.
