1920s sconces by Lightolier PAIR


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this stunning PAIR of 1920s high-quality 2-arm sconces by the incomparable Lightolier Company!

This listing is for a matched pair (two separate fixtures) of 2-arm sconces.


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 first offered 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.

The sconces are mostly cast brass, and they retain their original finish: a distinctive mottled effect. Gorgeous.

The back-plates are narrow but they cover a vertically-mounted rectangular electrical box. They will not cover a round or hexagon-shaped box, or a horizontally-mounted rectangular box.

I really love the sweeping lines of the back-plates, and the shells on top.

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


DETAILS: The fixtures accept standard base 60W bulbs (not included).
COLOR: A mottled brown/gold.
SIZE: The sconces are about 11-inches high, and about 9-wide. They project about 5-1/2-inches.

  • I love writing this: there’s no damage.
