Vintage Retro Antique Sconce Wall Light French Coach Lantern Carriage
I have found and restored a few of these old carriage lights now, but i have never made one to be mounted on a wall before so i thought i would... I have made the wooden wall plate from a solid piece of local French hardwood that i have finished with a decorative edge and and given it a good coat of wax. The light securely sits on a metal bracket (it can easily be removed) that has been attached to the wooden plate. The light itself is lovely, black in color with a gold-like interior, all the glass is intact and i assume original, the left side panel opens and closes perfectly with a functional catch to hold it closed. I assume it is french as i found it here in France, there is a mark of 2 crossed hammers on the opening panel (please see last photo), maybe this symbol means something? The light may be old but the bayonet (B22) lamp holder that i have securely installed is brand new, as is the cable. At the rear of the wall plate i have fixed a simple but practical'hanging' bracket, so the light can simply be hung on any secure wall.
The size is approximately 300mm high x 180mm wide, it weighs about 1.5kg. The light bulb will NOT be included. As usual i would always recommend the use of low wattage/low energy lamps!
