Vintage 1950s Copper Porch or Wall Sconce Light Fixture

$ 249.99

This early 1950s sconce was at the forefront of the resurgence of using copper as a Post-War building material. Copper was becoming a popular material choice for lighting due to its durability, resistance to weathering, and classic appearance. However, as building demand increased due to returning wartime soldiers and their newly created families, this would give way to cheaper electroplated copper or brass finishes.

The copper sconce has been restored, detailed, and cleaned. It includes installation hardware for a convenient installation.

Measurements: The fixture measures 8 inches at its tallest point, 4 1/2 inches at its widest point, and protrudes 6 inches from the wall.

Condition: The fixture features a new porcelain socket, wire, wire sheathing, grounding wire, brass thumbscrews, brass finials, lacquerer finish, mounting bracket, and installation hardware. The fixture shows its antiquity with minor inconsistencies, including age spots in the brass, color differences in the copper, and a small ding on the backside of the fitter lip.

Electrical: The fixture uses a standard medium base socket. Suitable for dry conditions. Use a 60-watt bulb. Bulb not included.
