A Pair Of Crystal, Nickel and Copper Wall Sconces

TINKER & TOAD
A Simply Stunning Pair Of Crystal, Nickel and Copper Wall Sconces by Renowned Maker J & L Lobmeyr, Vienna. Of semi-circle form with an attractive central embossed copper panel with leaf decoration. Flanked to either side by vertical baguette-cut glass. Over the two tiers below hang roughly twenty two crystal lustres drops interspersed with baguette-cut drops. The light frame is finished in nickel silver which contrasts really well against the crystal and copper.

J & L Lobmeyr was founded in 1823 by Joseph Lobmeyr. When his children acquired the company they renamed it J & L Lobmeyr, named after his son Joseph and brother Louis. They soon become world renowned and provided a crystal chandelier for Schönbrunn Palace and other clients. They also had a partnership with Thomas Edison with whom they co-developed the first electric chandeliers in the world, in 1880. They also worked for the King of Belgium, the Duke of Brabant, and the Court of Flanders.
In recognition of their services, they were titled purveyor to the Imperial Court. In 1917, Louis died. The company was left to Stefan Rath, Louis' nephew. Additional clients included the Vienna State Opera, the Metropolitan Opera, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and the Kremlin.
today, the company is still owned by Rath's grand children Andreas, Leonid and Johannes.

Hello, my name is Miles and I would like to welcome you to my store Tinker & Toad.

We are a family run business in the heart of the beautiful Sussex countryside. We deal in an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture, architectural salvage, re-worked industrial lighting, decorative arts and a carefully selected choice of paintings and modern art.

We have a bricks and mortar shop in Heathfield, East Sussex where we always welcome first-time buyers, collectors and interior designers. We have retailed from the shop for 18 years and took over the premises ourselves in 2015 and have seen a gradual increase on returning customers. We pride ourselves on giving a personal, friendly shopping experience and hope you will arrive a stranger, but leave as a friend.

With our love of both antique and modern interiors, we enjoy helping our customers to furnish a space, whether it's a loft apartment, a club, a cottage or a castle. We have supplied many wonderful customers, including Soho House, The Box Club London, Elmore Court Gloucestershire, Bonnington House Scotland and the Ned Hotel London. I am happy to take a phone call seven days a week, 8am to 8pm or feel free to pop me over an email. We look forward to hearing from you.

Warmest regards, Miles.
