Pair of Art Deco Slipper Sconces by Markel Item # R4719
"Shaded lights" were the hot trend from about 1930 through 1935, before Streamline style and cup-shade fixtures moved center stage. Inspired by French examples and featuring individual glass slip or slipper shades at each light bulb that were typically unique to specific body designs, these fixtures generally offer direct illumination of the ceiling above while casting a warm and intimate light on the area below - often a living room or a dining room table. These fixtures were usually designed in named families or series, with a range of different lengths, lights, colors and applications available.
For example, this pair of Art Deco brackets hail from the 4400-A line produced by Markel Electric Products of Buffalo, NY. According to a 1930's catalog, kept safe in Rejuvenation's archive, Markel boasts that the 4400-A line offers "beauty and efficiency in delivering soft shaded light … adapt[ing] them to all types of interiors."
