Description

I’m very pleased to offer this matched pair of HUGE wall sconces!

As can be seen in second image, the massive scale of the sconces is obvious (the small sconce is for comparison only. It is not part of this listing. Although only one large sconce is pictured, TWO are being offered here). The sconces are a whopping 30-inches high, 15-wide, and with a projection of 8-1/2-inches.

The sconces would seem to be mid-19th-century oil lamp conversions. But, this is belied by the Made In Spain stamp! So, I am guessing that they are post-1950. They are clearly modeled after oil lamp fixtures. For rail-road use in the age before electricity? Each socket is housed in what looks like an oil lamp but these are faux oil lamps.

The original sockets (which I replaced) were European, so the sconces were brought to America at some point.

The fixtures can also be table lamps. If you prefer them as such please just let me know and I will add a long length of cord and plug to each fixture.

I can envision the pair as sconces on a long covered porch in a place like Arizona or Montana.

Of course, they would also make spectacular statements as sconces in, say, a dining room. Or, hanging kinda low over bedroom night-tables.

The round glass is amber colored, and has a gentle texture.

The fixtures are black, and brass with patina.

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

DETAILS: Each fixture accepts one standard base 100W bulb.

COLOR: See above.

SIZE: See above.

CONDITION:

  • I love writing this: there’s no damage.
  • The porcelain sockets and wiring are new.
  • The finishes are in good condition (see images). I cleaned the sconces but did not restore them. The finishes look vintage.
