Early Converted Gas/Electric Sconce, C1905

Item #R2273


This striking fixture is one of the earliest that accommodated both gas and electric technology (it's now converted so that both lights are electric). This sconce is paired with a stunning pair of Gill prismatic shades. These shades were designed to distribute the dim light of carbon and early tungsten bulbs as efficiently as possible. Softer lines and occasional “zipper cut” ribs give a more casual feel to this shade compared to its sharper and more scientific Holophane cousins. You can see the beautiful refraction of the carbon-filament bulb in the ribs and zipper cuts of the glass, which is just how it would have looked over 100 years ago.
