Henry Dreyfuss 20th Century Limited Train Wall Sconces


From the iconic bullet nosed 20th century Limited streamliner train comes these highly stylized wall fixtures. We have two pairs available in various directional designs. The clever design allows the painted aluminum and magnified glass covers to hook onto the wall base with a simple twist of the decorative knob. The light switch is located on the fixture bottom. They are in fine original condition, with only minor paint chipping. If you prefer pristine, we will be happy to repaint the metal sections for you. Dreyfuss was a major American industrial designer, noted for his telephone designs. Starting with the classic black desk top phone, he designed all the bell system phones up to the Princess model.
