ANTIQUE Early 1900’s
PAIR of Brass Sconces – Orig Satin Milk Glass Shades
A pair of all
brass sconces from about 1915. They have signed Hubbell fitters and sockets. I stripped off 100 years of paint splatter and gunk and got down the raw brass. I wiped them very lightly with a patina solution
and wiped off immediately.
pieces are in good shape, and I can see only a couple of miniscule dimples in the back plates. The paddle turn-key sockets
are in excellent working order and the fixtures have been rewired. I have replaced the
rusted inner pipes with a new fully threaded pipes and am including 2 modern brackets that will make them very
easy to install. The bells/back plates are about 5 inches in diameter so they
will easily cover a modern, round electrical box.
The shades are milk glass with a satin finish, and are both in excellent
condition with no chips, cracks, or even any of the typical fitter
nicks. The have a wonderful shape and are craftsman or Arts and Crafts era
design. They look fantastic when lit with Edison bulbs.
part about these is that they are ready to go; all you have to do is mount
Length from wall to outside of shade: Adjustable up to 9 inches (as shown)
Shades: Standard 2 ¼ inch fitter, 4 3/4 inches tall
Back plate: 5 inches in diameter
