Description

I’m very pleased to offer this incredible PAIR of 1920s sconces by Lion Electric!

This listing is for two matching 2-arm sconces.

During the early 20th-century there were three premier lighting companies:

  • Caldwell
  • Lion Electric
  • Lightolier

Caldwell created extraordinary lighting, the best, and also extraordinarily expensive. Their creations grace the White House.

Lion Electric also created incredible lighting. Their creations were exquisitely manufactured and lush with richness and detail. My extensive research into the Lion Company has offered but scant information. Lion Electric appears to have been formed in the 1920s, but did not survive the Great Depression.

While Lion Electric was not as expensive as Caldwell (no company was) their work was still at the very high end of the price scale. Very high.

The pair of sconces offered in this listing are…stunning. They are beautifully made. Fabulous, too. And gorgeous.

The sconces are also large. They are an imposing 14-inches high, 10-1/2-inches wide, and they project 4-inches.

The finish is original, and in wonderful condition. The gold looks like gilt, and with a luscious, rare orange accent. Wow.

Note also the expressive original mounting buttons.

It is a thrill to offer such rare and magnificent sconces.

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