Make an offer today and own these NOW! I have a second set of these available under another listing. They retain their original cold-painted surface and would be more appropriate for a traditional decor. You should stop & take a moment and look at each image of these highly detailed Antique Sconces from the firm of Edward F Caldwell & Company, New York.
Presented fully restored and refinished and ready to hang. These sconces are about 12" tall and 3 3/4" across at the back. Arms are about 11 1/2 across. Outfitted with original spun brass painted "candles". Images of these sconces can be found online in the E F Caldwell archives at the Smithsonian web site.I handle mostly the lighting of E F Caldwell & Co. And other competing high quality firms. Rewiring is suggested because there is little doubt the wiring is original also. These are about 110 years old. I will be offering the most amazing collection of antique lighting from a major collection over the next year. The pieces are mostly from the E.
Caldwell Company of New York City and cover production from 1895 - 1945. These pieces are not cheaply made like the modern copies. Each piece comes with a unique story and can be tracked back, in most cases, to the original client.When possible an original image of the piece will be supplied. Additionally, the New York Public Library holds the customer archives and they can be searched to determine for whom the piece was created.
Caldwell Company, you are truly creating a link between the Gilded Age and today. You will not find pieces like this in a big box store.
