About

Receive our new selections direct from 1stdibs by email each week. Please click “Follow Dealer” button below and see them first! A pair of two arm sconces circa 1920 retaining their original dark bronze finish. These are the classic Dutch style sconces originally seen in the late sixteenth-early seventeenth centuries in Holland. The style traveled to England and America along with the Dutch people who emigrated. The use of brass was important for two reasons-it was inflammable and therefore safe to use with candles and it could be polished increasing the amount of light reflected. These sconces may be used with candles and may also be electrified and hard wired into the wall. The boldly scrolled arms support a large bobeche that is used for dripping candle wax.
