Vintage Modern Gilded Acanthus Sconce Pair

Fab 1960s-1970s sconce pair! Fanned leaf design, stylized acanthus buds with bloom spikes. Hand-applied gilding, velvet candle sleeves in color choice. Rewire included.


Fanned, stylized leaves reminiscent of cattail leaves form the basic design of these wonderful vintage modern sconces. Leaf fans are topped by acanthus leaf pods with unusual stylized bloom spikes. Hand-applied gilding is faux-distressed for a wonderful, textural effect.

Manufactured by Peerless Electric Merchandising Co, labels are still intact. These great sconces were found with only three of their original red velvet candle covers which, alas, were in very poor condition. I have held on to these beauties for quite some time as I waited patiently for just the right candle covers to come along. Patience really is a virtue! I am delighted to offer the new owners of these sconces your choice of peacock blue or 1970s green velvet candle covers, new vintage stock sourced from Spain! If you prefer something more subtle, just let me know.

LOVE the lamp but don’t live in the Dallas area? No problem! I am happy to ship worldwide following online payment via PayPal.

My Vintage Modern Gilded Acanthus Sconce Pair is looking for a new home to illuminate. Might it yours?

As always, thanks for stopping by!



Very good – excellent structural and surface condition.
Rear of sconces bear some pale blue paint, as though once hung on before paint was dry.

Wiring is old and has been clipped short. Rewire necessary – included in purchase price.
Sconces will be rewired for hard wire installation by an electrician onto your wall.


Lamp: 26.5 in High x 12 in Wide x 4.5 in Deep
