A big wall sconce/electric light fixture ca 1910s made from heavy cast bronze and done in the Classical Revival design with acanthus leaf motifs. The back plate is rectangular with a Grecian-style urn suspended from the bottom. Thick-walled hollow arms swoop down from acanthus leaves which extend out from the backplate, and end in sockets, cupped by four leaves, for the light bulbs. Exposed bulbs were popular lighting choices during the 1910s and 1920s. A large acanthus leaf curls down from each socket. The fixture has been recently re-wired and is ready to be installed.
There are no maker's marks that I can find. The piece measures 14.5" high, 9.5" wide, and 5.5" deep and weighs 6 pounds.It has a deep brown patina which I have left intact. The fixture is in excellent condition and ready to resume its function.
