Rare Beauties by Lightolier!

 

I came across this pair online. What initially captured my special attention was how unusual the sconces were. They also looked familiar. Oh! Were they by…

 

…the fabulous Lightolier Company? They were! And, even better, the sconces were from Lightolier’s…

 

…Da-Ray Series! (This doesn’t really signify much but I do love the name!)

 

Upon arrival, the metal components proved to be covered with several layers of gold paint. Several layers of very badly applied paint! There were a bunch of particles in the paint and even, ick, hairs! Yikes! So, I had to strip all this down to bare brass, and then refinish the wall mount. The BRIGHT brass will soon patina.

 

The sconces are on the large size, and were originally intended for a commercial setting, like a bank. Today, they would fabulous in a living room or even kitchen. Or a bathroom! Yummy!

  1. What on earth is bronzol? I hope it’s a fancy name for pot metal, it’d add some class to my vocabulary!
