1950s French Brass Y-Form Wall Sconce by Royal Lumieres for Lunel

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

I'm obsessed with the Royal Lumieres collection of lighting for Maison Lunel. This is another beguiling example of their refined rational craft. The structure is an 1/8 inch thick cutout of solid brass in the form of a rakish letter "Y" and attached to which are three opaline glass round demi-globes which are secured by spring-clips to shallow round metal bobeche which each hold a single candelabra bulb socket (up to 60 watts each) and punched holes for mounting flat to the wall. We can fabricate a brass backplate if you need to mount to a junction box. The back of the brass “Y” is incised with a channel through which the wire passes to carry the current to the top and bottom light. The wires that connect to the power source are inside the middle light and pass through a hole in the metal bobeche.
