      Comments about EDISON LIGHTING SCONCE:

      This item is unique and simply made with class. I love it hanging on my wall in the study. It provides a nice light with a switch to turn off and on. It is a wonderful item that people ask about or I love to tell about. I am picky with what goes in my home and this item has made my day. You have to appreciate art and history to adore this item as much as I do.

          Not worth the money it cost. Could have made it ourselves for a fraction of the cost.

          Cons

          • Bulb socket needs cover

          Best Uses

          • Great unusual award

          Comments about EDISON LIGHTING SCONCE:

          We purchased this piece to recognize our Board Directors who are voted as Director Emeritus. We will add each name with their dates of service to a small brass plate that will be attached to the board. Since we are in the electric utility industry, we thought this was the perfect award. Thanks for providing such quality in an unusual product.

          Comments about EDISON LIGHTING SCONCE:

          Although the connection to Edison is pretty distant and I wonder if it was original to Edison's time, the wording in hindsight was careful not to say it was, for a close electrician friend a pricey but great gift.
