This outstanding pair of Cast Bronze Lights are an incredible 26 1/2 tall. They are from the early 1900's, most likely 1900's to 1910's.
They were originally hanging on the front of a bank, as you would expect for a pair of lights this high quality. They came off of a bank in South, St Louis, Missouri and are even more impressive in person than my photos can show. The glass is textured clear glass held in place by each cast bronze horned piece, with ornate arch details in the bronze holding the glass panes. The cast bronze is textured in places and smooth on the horns and twists, which adds to the beauty of this pair. New sockets have been installed with new wiring.
They each take one standard medium base light bulb. Be sure to look closely at the photos of the incredibly beautiful back plates, with their fabulous raised design. Measurements: 26 1/2" tall 16 1/2" actual lantern height 12" projection from wall 10 1/2" measurement across the top horns 10 3/4" by 5 1/2" back plate Weight of each sconce is approx.
25 pounds Details: It looks like the sconces have been polished back to shiny, possibly in the 1980's or 90's, because they are beginning to regain their old patina. They do have a heavy clear coat on the bronze. The finials on them are not original, but it is what they came with to us. They are brass tassel finials, painted to match bronze of lights, which are removable, if you prefer not to have them.I have taken interior photos of the lights and will be happy to share them if interested. The sockets are new black porcelain sockets and you will see that at some point, someone has added little copper tabs, that the screws go through to hold the glass panes in place.
A few of the screws have been replaced with brass flat head screws. The glass is all in good condition, no broken or missing panes. We are not sure of the age of the glass, but it accents the lights perfectly and looks amazing when lit.
On close inspection of my photos, you may note that the top finials look different, but they do match. The top on the right with the lines is the correct direction.
