Brass wall lights, set of seven, Neoclassical

ROOMSCAPE
Brass wall lights, a set of seven in the Neoclassical style, 1950`s ca, English

These wall lights have been gently cleaned while respecting the vintage patina. They are newly rewired & earthed, fully working, PAT tested by an electrician and ready to install. Each has new lamp holders & covers and new lampshades. Light bulbs are included. These lights can be use with a dimmer. It is possible to use these lights in other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity.

This set of 7 sconces sell together or in pairs. The price featured here is for the set of 7 together.

These vintage wall lights are in the Neoclassical style reflecting classic designs and traditional English foundry techniques. Key design features are the classic amphora body, scrolling leaf arms & geometric hexagonal motif. This design would suit a range of interiors such as Antique, Traditional, Hollywood Regency & Country.

Each frame in solid polished brass has a bulbous, amphora type backplate with two leaf scrolling arms. The hexagonal geometric theme is subtly repeated in the overall design.

The arms are quality cast and with attention to detail. The front portion of each arm is of hexagonal section finishing with a hexagonal bobeche drip pan leading to a lampholder. The new lampholders are covered with removable new cream candle tubes.

Each light is finished with a removable new clip-on black silk lampshade with trim and metallic gold lining.

The central portion of each frame has a Neoclassical influence with the amphora theme, subtle repeating in half the hexagonal shape of the arms & bobeches.

Each frame has two holes to fit the light to the wall.

Each wall light carries 2 standard small screw light bulbs (E14) up to 40 Watts. At present these lights are fitted & photographed with Candle clear shaped light bulbs of 28 Watts. These are included in the price. It is possible to use other E14 Candle light bulbs.

All seven vintage sconces are in very good condition. The frames are sound. The brass surfaces are in very good condition with the original clear lacquer present. There is a light warm patina present with minor superficial marks in line with age & wear. The 14 lampshades are new and in very good condition.

Additional dimensions:

The dimensions of the frame alone (without the lampshades) is: Height: 33 cm, Width: 40 cm, Depth: 22 cm.

The lampshade alone has the following dimensions: Height: 9.5 cm, Diameter at the bottom: 14 cm, Diameter at the top: 7 cm.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care with packing. For safe transport the shades will be wrapped separately in bubble wrap and an outer layer of card. These will be stacked together. The frames will be wrapped similarly. Together these pieces would easily fit into a box with loose fill packing suitable for posting with a courier. We ship with reliable couriers (signed for, tracked & insured).

UK BRASS FOUNDRY HISTORY
England is world famous for its historical production of brass. During the industrial revolution brass foundries in the Birmingham area were key to the Midlands prosperity and intercity connections. Birmingham was both close to the natural resources needed as well as the other industries which used metals. Brass was used for endless items which in turned supported design & technology . The intense production expertise made Birmingham world renowned for metal production. It is no surprise that it was also here that the Arts & Crafts Movement had a major role and contributed to the Birmingham School of Art. Towards the late 20th Century, brass foundries manufactured homewares to cope with the shift in industrial manufacturing and in response to the national interest in home decorating. Sadly more recently many of these foundries producing handcraft quality items have closed, unable to compete with the economic forces and cheap imports from abroad.

Sergio Guazzelli worked as an Architect and Interior Designer in Argentina. In 1990, he moved to Rome, where he developed and diversified his talents. The 'Eternal City' ignited his interest in antiques, leading to a Diploma in Antiques & Fine Arts. As architecture embraced art; antiques found a place in his designs.

In 1993, Sergio opened his first antiques showroom in Rome, with a second seasonal shop in Ponza, an island close to Capri. The island spirit, with her international clients, influenced his eclectic style. Following features in several magazines, Sergio established his own art & antiques publication. As a part of this, Sergio regularly visited and reported on leading European Auction Houses. It was London's art & antique scene, which drew Sergio.

In 1999, Sergio opened with his partner, Blair Thorburn, their London shop, Roomscape Vintage Furniture, in the historic Horse Hospital at The Stables Market in Camden Town. It was here that they became one of the first to propose vintage Scandinavian style to the London market. Moving forward at the beginning of the Millennium, Roomscape proposed further styles such as Hollywood Regency & Modernist glam.

Roomscape’s adventurous approach brought them to the attention of decorators including a collaboration of the launch of Liberty’s Fourth-Floor Furniture Department in 2006. Decorators not only appreciated the style but also the quality of pieces. With a wide range of contacts and 25 years of experience, Sergio & Blair source stock from abroad as well as trade fairs, private clients and auctions houses. Roomscape searches for pieces in good condition and gentle restoration is done to bring the piece to the best original vintage condition. Each piece is researched with historical detail fully presented on the website.

In 2009, Roomscape moved from a ‘traditional’ shop to a larger showroom with a stronger online presence reaching global destinations. The ‘By Appointment’ Showroom allows customers, both the trade and the public, to have the full 75m² space all to themselves for as long as they want and have a coffee with the boys. Moving from a shop has allowed a more attention to buying and sourcing abroad. It has certainly helped that Sergio is fluent in five languages.

2010 was the year Roomscape worked in partnership with Mary Portas' Living & Giving shops furnishing the Notting Hill & Primrose Hill stores. This collaboration proved charity shopping can be socially responsible, exciting and stylish at the same time. ‘Socially’ responsible in other ways, Roomscape has sourced vintage pieces for the entertainment industry such as The Union Club in Soho, London. The Union is a well established private members club and one of the first to furnish their club with vintage pieces. Most notable is their collection of Sciolari Chandeliers from Roomscape.

In 2010 Roomscape launched a great selection of 20th Century Art, mostly British artists, from the likes of Terry Frost, Richard Smith, Patrick Heron, John Piper, Victor Pasmore, Patrick Proctor, Stephen Buckey, Brendan Neiland, Patrick Caulfield and many others.

Introducing a hire service in 2011, Roomscape moved fast into Fashion, supplying Fresh Film, Cutler and Gross luxury eyeware , Elle Decoration magazine, Agent Provocateur, Miss Sixty & Bulgari

Just in time for Christmas 2012 Roomscape launched a Vintage Jewellery Collection with rare American pieces from the 1940's & 1950's, such as Trifari, Coro Craft, HAR, Renoir & Matisse, Christian Lacroix and Dior.
