Newton School copper candle sconces


Two copper wall sconces set with Ruskin Pottery roundels designed by George S. Tanner and made by the Newton School of Metal Work circa 1905.

The sconces are a variation on a 1903 design by George. S. Tanner who was a Godalming based designer in the Arts and Crafts style. He was very active in the 1890s and achieved significant success in The Studio design competitions under the pseudonym of “sixpence”. 

The large sconces have cone shaped hoods above a copper back plate with centrally mounted Ruskin Pottery roundels. The candle holders/drip pans are detachable .

I am happy to sell these individually or as a pair.


Dimensions:    16″ tall by 5″ wide and just over 5 1/2″ deep

Condition:   Good. One candle holder is a brass replacement but it fits quite well and colour matches

Price:   £550 each – one sold
