Quezal Pulled Feather Art Glass Irridescent Shade Brass Sconce Nr For Sale

Quezal Pulled Feather Art Glass Irridescent Shade Brass Sconce Nr

up for sale i have this very nice double brass sconce with signed pulled feather quezal shades. this is a very nice item folks and selling without reserve. the sconce measures about 14 inches wide and seven inches deep and 5 inches tall without shades in place. the shades measure 5 and 1/4 inches tall by maximum width of 3 and 3/4 inches wide. the brass sconce with a june 30, 1914 pat. date on it. the sconce without any damage whatsoever and with the original bryant sockets and switches still in place. the switches turning nicely and the original patina in fine color as well. no missing shade screws and no metal damage or fatique. the signed quezal shades without any damage whatsoever except for a very very small flea bite at the top rim of one of the shades, not even worth mentioning really but i did so for 100% accuracy sake. please check out my other great lighting sales that i currently have running now as well.buyers please remember that i am selling antiques and that thereshould bea degree of expectationon your part inknowing that there will be normal aging and minor imperfections towards an item that is 75 to 100 years old. chances are if there arent any, its a newer item and youshouldntwant it anyways. in other words, a minor blemish on some metalwork belonging to a large shade or a 1/16 by 1/16 of a paint flake missing, please try and be reasonable. i really dont want to do a refund because the finial ( typically a 10.00 piece ) isnt perfect on a 2,000.00 lamp. i always describe the important aspects towards condition reports and sometimes my eye misses what i deem immaterial issues such as the aforementioned sentence. it seems the more experienced an antique dealeror buyeris, the more understanding of condition they are. that being said, if you think your going to be a difficult buyer because you want perfection in a 100 year old piece, please purchase another sellers product. has made itvery difficult for sellers in the past few years yet im a good seller who wants to be fair and all i ask for is a fair buyer to do business with. thanks for your understanding.

if the winning buyer is from the northeast i would like to try and get this picked up or delivered if possible.

There are a few things in life we can’t do without. Food, water, fire, oxygen, the sun, shelter etc. So when it comes to shelter and necessary light for it, that’s where I come in. I believe in living simply and within my means butsurrounded by items of great quality. I would rather own a great reverse painted lamp or Stickley bookcase than drive a foreign car that will only depreciate in value and cost me good money for repairs and maintenance. Or pay $40,000 in property taxes a year on a 7,000 square foot home that I only use 2500 sq. ft.of and the wasteful utilities that go along with that.

So why is it people go out and spend say $500.00 bucks on a pair of lamps that in ten years will be in a rummage sale with the hopes of getting $15.00 for the pair. Why not spend $1,000 on a lamp and have something meaningful, and when you tire of it ten years later, sell it, and get your money back in its entirety or even make a profit on top of the investment. Not to mention you got the same usage for that entire time period? This makes infinitely more financial sense than the other choice, plus you have a conversation piece in the room and something to be proud of. Also you have more cultural feeling invested in something 100 years old knowing that it can never be duplicated by modern making techniques and knowing there a few, if any, like it left for this world and now it’s yours. You own it. You display it and care for it. It becomes part of you so to speak versus a throw away item that was purchased at Raymour and Flanigan, Sears, Macy’s or Walmart.

So again that’s where I come in. lighting. Great period lighting when electricity was still in its infancy. When makers like Bradley and Hubbard, Handel, Tiffany studios, Pairpoint,and others cared about quality, appearance, and function. When makers were trying to outdo one another with this new business boom of electriclighting. When we went from whale and kerosene oil lamps and gas,to electric. This is when the best lamps in the world were manufactured and the ones I want to light my home with when its dark. I can’t control the sun or the amount of light it provides or when it comes up or goes down, and whether it’s cloudy or not, but I can control the light in my home when its dark. and like I said earlier, I want nice rugs, paintings, pottery, furniture, etc. and I want to see those itemslit by great lighting. It’s what makes a home more outstanding and livable because without it you see absolutely nothing. A quality lamp makes or breaks a room. You can have the best rugs, furniture, paintings, and accessories in the world, but without great lamps or lighting nobody will ever see it. Buy quality and you will never regret it.
