Fantastic pair (2) mid century Hollywood Regency heavy brass double arm candle sconces with hurricane shades. Beautiful and elegant design throughout and topped off with the very rare glass hurricane shades. I didn't notice until I enlarged the photos that the shades appear to have horizontal bands which would make for a great effect. These wall candle lights hold tapered candles and votive by the looks of it which would sit, nestled on top of the hole for tapered candles - hope that makes sense. Look to be signed on the bolt holding the two arms to the body. PLEASE use the zoom feature to inspect this item and email if you have questions before purchase.
CONDITION: Is excellent without damage or repairs. These are each really quite solid and heavy! The one thing I would do is add a little extra felted tape around the base of the hurricane shades to make them fit more snuggly.
SIZE: Overall including the shades 15 inches tall x 10 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches deep, and the shade is 6 1/2 inches incl. the part that sits inside the sconces x 3 1/2 inches across.

Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
Downsizing was inevitable and I've done it several times already. This is the big one, and I am still unboxing treasures retrieved from storage after decades.
All pieces are one of a kind handpicked by yours truly over 40 years to add texture, style and story to your authentic style.
My collecting story starts after watching Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new.
Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
