Pair of Sconces with Gill Prismatic Shades, c1905

Item #R1792


Everybody knows twins have a little magic in them. We believe that still applies even when the twins in question are light fixtures – and antiques at that. Still wearing their original finish (waxed for protection and luster), they also wear original prismatic shades. Full of sparkle and charm, these shades actually belong to the scientific realm. The angle of each facet was mathematically determined to reflect the most light (a near-necessity in the early 1900s, when light bulbs were dim indeed).
