Colonial 18th Century Tin Wall Sconce
At Hammerworks we handcraft each Colonial 18th Century Tin Wall Sconce in a variety of styles and finishes. Most importantly since 1979, we have been leading the way in the Colonial lighting industry. Not only that, we employ the same techniques as the original craftsmen. Therefore you will consistently receive an authentic handmade 18th-century reproduction wall sconce. In addition, we use only solid copper, brass, or tin to create each wall sconce. Consequently, this allows you versatility in coordinating with the color scheme and style of any setting. Whether you are decorating a classic Williamsburg, Colonial, Cape Cod Style Cottage, or New England Farmhouse, we offer a sconce style that is just right. As a result, our Colonial wall sconces combine beauty and function making them a perfect decorating accessory for any home.
For an area where you may need additional lighting, we offer many of our sconces with 2 or 3 candles. Furthermore, each sconce accommodates 60 watts per candelabra socket, assuring plenty of illumination. With Hammerworks’ capability to create and handcraft sconces, custom work is always welcome. If a more primitive wall sconce is desired, each Hammerworks wall sconce is available in a non-electric candle version upon request.
As mentioned, Colonial Sconces are a great lighting option to install throughout your home. Here are some guidelines to consider. As a general rule of thumb, install a Colonial 18th Century Tin Wall Sconce between 5 – 6 feet from the floor. Another guideline is to measure down 6 inches from the top of the window, and then use that as your mounting height for all the wall sconces in the room.
