Photo Friday: Arts and Crafts Style Wall Sconce

By Gretchen Sawatzki


The Arts and Crafts Movement of the late 20th century challenged the norm that was Victorian Era design. As early as 1860, designers, architects, and artists moved away from the ornate details and homes no longer exhibited unnecessary decoration. Mass-production of all goods also gave away to handcrafted items by skilled craftsman including furniture makers, builders, metal smiths, and glass artisans.

This antique Arts and Crafts Era wall sconce embodies the move to simplicity. Made from copper and stained glass panels this lantern style wall sconce is both beautiful and practical. It's rectilinear shape and clean lines make this sconce not only antique to be treasured, but also a gem that could be installed in any modern home.
