Signed B&H early electric-electric sconce
This signed B&H early electric-electric sconce was made by Bradley & Hubbard in Meriden, CT. The fitter rings are dated Dec. 9, ’96 and Sept. 29, ’96. Electricity was still quite new in the late 1800s, so this fixture is a fine example of quality workmanship, creative design and science! It was also likely the precursor to gas/electric fixture designs which became popular around the turn of the century.The brass has a rich, even patina representative of the sconce’s age. The lightly frosted shades are ruffled and etched with B&H’s classic bows, wreaths & torches design. Each light has its own turn switch, which allows you to use one or both lights depending on your lighting needs. It can be operated at the sconce itself, or placed in the ON position and operated by a wall switch.
Perfect for bedroom, bathroom, dining room, entryway, hallway, library, office, over the kitchen sink, or anywhere extra light is needed. Measures 14″ high (upper shade edge to lower shade edge) by 4 1/2″ wide by 11 1/2″ deep. Rewired with ground wire added.
