Vintage Antique Lighting
Pair of Medieval Revival Entry Sconces w/Axe Motif Item #R100127 Circa 1930s
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Typically dating from the 1920s and ‘30s, Romance Revival fixtures are exuberant and warm, often brightly painted with polychrome finishes, and capped with artistic flourishes like crystal drops, heraldic shields, cast crenelated medallions or elaborate stamped-metal botanical patterns.
They show a free mixture of styles, including Spanish, Tudor, Gothic, Medieval, Moorish, and sometimes pure Hollywood storybook fantasy. Though mass produced, many feature faux rivets and hammering, as though wrought by hand; a nostalgic reminder of bygone pre-industrial days. Originally emerging from the birth of Hollywood spectacle and the elaborate movie palaces that sprang up around the nation, the style thrived through the Depression era, as people yearned for relief from the bleak realities of daily life.
Both quaint and austere residences enjoyed this style, and even today you find these lights in Revival-style homes and buildings across the nation. Historical Style: Romance Revival Condition Notes: New replicated original finish in black lacquer with hand-painted silver highlights, complementing the original "brain glass" shades – see all photos for details. Bulbs not included. PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS:
