Pair Edwardian wall lights converted from gas
£175.00 for the pair
These early Edwardian wall lights were converted from gas to electricity at some point, and retain the gas tap as a feature at the top of the arm. The tap is stamped 'S.M.Gas Co.' which is a reference to The South Metropolitan Gas Company, operational in London from 1829 until 1949.
The shade holders and wall plates are in brass finish, and the combination of these with the copper arms give the lights a unique, characterful appearance.
The opaque glass globe shades are possibly not original, but really complement the whole fitting.
