Extraordinary Antique Neoclassical Two-Light Sconce with Original Cut Glass

Out of stock



This is an amazing antique Neoclassical two-light sconce, c. 1900, with its original cut and sandblasted glass. Made of brass and bronze, this sconce is composed of three long, arched, sandblasted glass panels; the front panel is adorned with a double cut border featuring inverted scallops at the top. The panels are held together by brass bands that run the length of the glass; the front brass bands are crowned with intricately cast palm leaves. A ribbed band runs around the center of the sconce, accented at the front and on each side by a large rosette; gorgeous brass foliate detail scrolls inward from each edge at the front, framing the rosette. The base of the chandelier features a fluted bronze band, atop which rests a magnificent urn with acanthus and volute detail. A finial finishes each of the front corners at the base. The underside of the sconce features a pair of glass panels, allowing light to shine through the bottom. This wall lamp is in excellent condition, and the glass is also in excellent condition with no cracks or breaks, just the expected fleabites at the edges. The sconce has been professionally rewired and comes with all the necessary attachments for modern installation. It measures 8 7/8” wide, 30 ½” tall, and protrudes 5 ½” from the wall.
