A Parting Piece of Knowledge…
It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when the sconce as we know it came about, but it’s safe to say some form of wall-mounted lighting has been around for hundreds of years. The earliest example: a torch fastened to a wall, meant to light the way in long dark corridors and to be removed for handheld illumination. Candles later took the place of torches and were often paired with reflective backplates to amplify the light. Thanks to the invention of electricity, these often-dangerous open-flame models were replaced with light bulbs, and today’s beautiful sconces run the gamut from elaborately shaped tole creations to simple swing-arm styles.
