1800 Wall Candle Sconce

Antique sconce candle holder with backplate from Germany, brass, handmade, for wall mounting. Width 12 in., height 22 in. Rare find.
A sconce is a wall-mounted lighting fixture, traditionally used to hold candles or torches. It is one of the oldest type of lighting fixture still in use.

This sconce was used indoors with candles. It has not been polished, has the old patina. A reflecting backplate intensifies the light of the candle flame. It was later modified for electricity.
Electricity was not available till after 1880. Most people still lit their homes with gas light and candles.
These fixtures never go out of style and have been in use for centuries!

Cash only.
