This impressive Antique Cast Bronze Porch Light is from the early 1900's, most likely 1910's to 1920's. It is very high quality and signed in three places on the light, RIDDLE CO. This solid bronze porch light is much more impressive in person than my photos can show. Please browse through all of the photos, to see the fabulous details of the light. The shade is clear etched glass that has been hand wheel cut in a lovely scallop and star design.
It is safely held in place by the four bronze columns, that hold the bottom in place. The cast bronze is textured in places and smooth on the horns and twists, which adds to the beauty of this pair. Light bulbs are easily changed by removing two ball nuts on the bottom and sliding the bottom off. A new socket has been installed with new wiring. It takes one standard medium base light bulb.
Be sure to look closely at the photos of the incredibly beautiful back plate, with it's lovely design and it does have it's original hanger as well. Measurements: 17" tall 7" projection from wall 8 7/16" by 4 7/8" back plate 4" by 6" shade Weight of the sconce is approx.
Details: It looks like the sconce has been polished or sandblasted, possibly in the 1980's or 90's, but it is beginning to regain it's old patina. It does have a satin finish to the bronze, which is why we assume it may have been sandblasted, the satin finish is beautiful on it.
Please notice in the close ups that the light does have some pitting from casting. I have taken interior photos of the light and will be happy to share them if interested. The glass shade is in good condition, no cracks or chips. If you have any questions about this light or would like additional photos, please contact me.
