An Ormolu Double Sconce

 

This sconce has the electric bulbs and lacey shades. People are often confused about whether the bulb is pointing upwards or downwards.  To be correct, the bulbs should be pointing down! You will also find a hole on the other side for hanging it on a nail. The sconce is made to project forward from a wall plate. The arms stretch forward with beautiful scroll work and form a branch for the two lights to project downward. Sconces are especially decorative on each side of a fireplace!
