WALL LIGHTS (pair)
1950s Danish vintage sconces with pressed glass, brass & rosewood by Danish J. Sommer – in excellent vintage condition
WALL LIGHTS – pair of 1950s Scandinavian Modern sconces with pressed glass and rosewood by Danish producer J. Sommer, in excellent vintage condition.
Charming pair of sconces, each comprised of a clear pressed glass shade, a brass bottom cup, a straight brass arm and a rectangular rosewood wall plate for easy wall mounting. The slightly pyramid shaped shades are richly faceted and encompasses the bulb and socket. It is held in place by a clever spring action grip (for easy bulb replacement), fixed on the brass bottom cup. A straight brass arm ensures a small space between the shade and the wall plate.
The thick faceted glass scatters the emitted light in every directing, creating an almost star-like pattern of light surrounding the lamps. The clear glass with its faceted ornamentation is complemented by the dark warm rosewood wall mounting, and the brass parts adds style to the look. Perfect for framing a doorway, or mirror, lighting up in a hall way, or for emphasizing a mid century feel in a sitting area or in the bedroom as cozy bedside lights.
A gorgeous pair of sconces with a 100% Scandinavian mid century feeling.
All original, but rewired with 1,5 m (4′ 11.1″) white plastic cord and fitted with Euro style two-pin plug – which is easily changed to your specific plug. On/off switch placed on the wall mounting. Tested and fully functional. Polished, cleaned, labeled and packed in protective bag.
