I found a set of four of these sconces. And passed on them. Then passed on them again. And again. Then I saw them again, and became curious as to WHAT was under the cheap white paint. I also felt sorry for the sconces, and knew I could find the poor abused babies a good home.
Oh my! My curiously was satisfied by silver-plate. Who paints over silver??? I also discovered tell-tale mounting holes for crystals. So, crystals once again grace the silver-plate sconces. The lines, too, captured my special attention. The sconces are, I believe, subtly 1930s, and are of a style one might have seen in a Jean Harlow movie.
