Pair of 1950's French Articulating Polished Nickel Wall Lights by Lunel

$2,500per set

About

Pair of petite wall-mounted multi-positional sconces from France circa late 1950's. Two tone with polished nickel plated brass perforated cones and mounting box (3.25" x 2" x 0.75") connected by an unusual multi-segmented cup-and-ball brass articulating arm. Cone diameter 3.75 inches. Maximum reach from wall 9.75 inches. We stripped off the remaining ivory reflective paint that was inside the cones to reveal the flash gilt brass. Push button on-off switch on each mounting box. These can be hard wired or corded if preferred. Ideal reading lights for a headboard or vanity. Takes a single US candelabra lightbulb up to 60 watts. We attribute these sconces to Maison Lunel because the shape and dimensions of the cones match the opaline glass cone shades used on other Lunel luminaires of the period.
