About
This stunning pair of Art Moderne sconces were realized in France, circa 1950. They feature rectilinear patinated brass frames with L-shaped supports in the same materials. In the center of each sits a frosted glass frame with translucent borders that expands gently to its apex. There are rectangular shades on each side also rendered in frosted glass with clear perimeters. The lantern style lamps sit on patinated brass wave form bases that taper to a curved lip in the front of each. With their sculptural form, impeccable construction, and dynamic mix of materials, these lamps are as versatile as they are aesthetically compelling, blending perfectly with any style of interior from classic Mid Century Modern to contemporary. They have been newly rewired to American standards and are in excellent condition. They accommodate five Edison based bulbs each, offering up to 500 watts of light.
