This pair of beautiful mirrored sconces were made by the Edward F. Caldwell & Co NYC around 1920.  Rewired and ready to go.  No apologies.  Mirror and patina perfect with age and use.  18 inches tall 12 inches from bobeche to bobeche.

These sconces are featured in my favorite decorator book I love called "One Man's Folly: The Exceptional Houses of Furlow Gatewood"  Book by Julia Reed.  In it, Furlow uses these mirrored sconces in most every room, above fireplaces, entry ways, some are not even electrified.  He's a genius to me.  I met him once maybe 25 years ago with his partner John Rosselli.  The two are genius and no one comes close to their style.  

Edward F. Caldwell & Co., of NYC, was one of the premier designers and manufacturers of electric light fixtures and decorative metalwork from the late 19th to the mid-20th centuries. Founded in 1895 by Edward F. Caldwell (1851–1914) and Victor F. von Lossberg (1853–1942), the firm left a legacy of custom designed and finely-made, metal gates, lanterns, chandeliers, ceiling and wall fixtures, floor and table lamps, and other decorative objects that can be found today in many metropolitan area churches, public buildings, offices, clubs, and residences including, the White House (1902 renovation), St Patrick's Cathedral NYC and Rockefeller Center.
