He also states that these are actually to be used on the ceiling, so that the star light shines down. You could certainly do it both ways, but this is why there is no attachment for the glass. When they’re on the ceiling, the glass simply sits in the sconce. These two amazingly unique mid century wall sconces consist of gold medal encircling two unique small atomic starburst glass shades. The gold metal part measures 9 inches across, and the glass starburst insert measures 4 3/4 inches across. The glass insert does not have anything to hold it inside. It does not appear that it ever did, but tape will work. The glass shades are in excellent vintage condition with no chips or cracks. These have been tested and work great. The outer part of the sconce is attached to the gold wall-mount by a gold arm. The light sockets sits right behind the glass shade at the end of the gold arm. There are pin prick holes around the edge of each gold part of the shade. This will allow additional light to shine through. The front gold part of each shade had a price tag on it. It was affixed with glue. I steamed the tag to get it off, but there is some glue residue left on the front of each of these. I’m choosing not to remove that because of the age of the shade. I’m afraid that it could damage the gilding. If you love vintage lighting, you know that these are extremely unique. I’ve honestly never seen anything like them. On the back it says they are from the Lehroloite company. I will also be listing a third sconce. The reason is not included with these two as it is not in the same condition as these two. While attempting to remove a price sticker on the front gold part, some of the gold came off. Underneath it is silver. You could choose to remove all the gold and make it silver, or you could choose to use it regardless of the bit of gold that is missing. But if you need three of these I’m letting you know that it will be listed in a separate listing.
