~~~~~~~~~FREE SHIPPING~~~~~~~~ An incredibly stunning set (2) of ultra rare early Art Deco transitional (shows both art deco and art nouveau styles) slip shade sconce/wall lights of the 1920's most probably by Markel lighting. Featured in ‘Home Beautiful’ magazine of the period, a copy of the relevant page can be supplied on request. Of exceptionally impressive visual impact, this chandelier has an antique polychrome finish on a white metal frame with classic floral design, the 2 translucent uranium glass green colored, (non reactive), acid etched and frosted glass shades have geometric floral intaglio designs. Although quite strongly frosted, the shades are completely translucent (semi-clear like stained glass). It should be noted that as the shades have open (upwards) design, most of the light escapes upward to reflect off the ceiling and walls thus filling the room with natural warm white light, much less green light escapes these fixtures. Please note: We have more sets (pairs) available here if you want.
CONDITION These sconces have been professionally restored (not just refinished - faithful to the original) and rewired, fitted with new UL certified phenolic (Bakelite) candelabra base screw (E12) sockets for candelabra bulbs and is thus compliant with modern electrical regulations. It is ready to use, (bulbs not included), other than the fitment of these new sockets and the restoration of the finish, the fixtures are completely original. We recommend 40w candelabra or round bulbs but you can also use CFL or the new LED bulbs. Considering their age and the primitive manufacturing processes of the day, they are in remarkably good condition, the white metal frames have no cracks, the finish is clean and bright and the glass shades may have a few tiny nibbles mostly around the fitter edge, unseen when installed. We need to keep in mind these fixtures are over 80 years old, whilst they are restored to the highest standard possible they may not be 'brand new perfect', any faults are indicated in this condition report. Some basic tools will be required for assembly/installation.
