Brass gas/electric sconce
This is a brass gas/electric sconce with one gas arm facing upward and two electric arms facing downward, c. 1900. It is also referred to as a 1+2 (one gas arm, two electric arms). It has rich patina and a very simple design. The Early American Pressed Glass (EAPG) shades are cut with classic starbursts and rope designs, and all three shades match. We chose not to convert the gas arm, leaving its original gas valve in place for decorative and historical purposes only. The gas arm is not functional. A wall switch is optional with this fixture. Both of the downward-facing lights can be independently operated by the pull chains. Lots of versatility here!
If you’re looking for another sconce to complement this one in a shared space, take a look at item #W8-21543 on our website. It’s a gas/electric sconce with a similar curled brass arm.
Perfect for the bathroom, over the kitchen sink, staircase, entryway, hallway, library, office, etc. Measures 12″ high by 13″ wide by 13 1/2″ deep. Rewired with ground wire added to meet today’s electric codes.
