Newton School copper candle sconces


A pair of copper wall sconces made by the Newton School of Metal Work, circa 1910.

The matching pair of sconces have back plates with large flowers in repousse against a hammered background. The candle holders are attached to wide, shaped, copper strips decorated with a simple punched design and attached to the back plates using copper rivets.  

This particular design appears in the archive of the Newton School of Metal Work. The design (shown) is a working template used to transfer the design to the metal. The style of the design strongly suggests it is by John or Mary Williams.

In lovely condition with a nice even patina.


Dimensions:    11″ tall by 5 1/4″ wide and 6″ deep

Condition:   Good. Some verdigris/polish residue in the respousse design

Price:   Sold
