From the 1920s comes this brilliant marriage of Art Nouvea and Art Deco. Cast in solid bronze. Wonderful organic Art Nouveau designs rise from the bottom to stylized pedals covering the socket covers. The intricate bronze casting is still crisp and clean, a sign of a very talented designer and manufacturer. The back plate is also highly detailed with a switch on the right side. These amazing sconces still retain their original finish and patina. Just a gentle cleaning and a light coat of wax to help protect them.
Comes with a full compliment of the light bulbs shown.
They are signed "Regal Lighting Products Corp Chicago Patent Pend". What is interesting about the signature is that we sold an identical pair several years ago which were signed "Majestic Manufacturing Co Los Angeles".
Height with light bulb: 16 inches
Width: 8 1/2 inches
Projection: 3 1/2 inches
It is particularly important with any vintage or antique item you are considering buying over the internet you should be able to see enlarged images of the item. What some dealers know is it that defects, uneven color, or poor workmanship are easily hidden by small or unfocused images. This cannot be stressed enough, you need to know exactly what you are getting and no amount of verbiage (overabundance or superfluity of words) can replace sharp large images.
