1920s ‘Golden Armor’ Mercury Sconce X-Ray Lights by Curtis Lighting

$695per item

About

Matched pair of authentic mercury X-ray wall sconces with ‘Golden Armor’ fluted shades (510 Queen). Produced by Curtis Lighting of Chicago, IL, a pioneer of indirect lighting, X-ray shades feature metal shades lined with mercury glass, which creates a warm glow when illuminated. These circa 1920 wall-mounted lights have been re-wired and CSA approved to current electrical standards. Price per light. Dimensions 15 H” x 15 W” x 10 D”. The first X-ray reflector was designed in 1897 by the Curtis Lighting Company of Chicago, IL. The unique reflectors were handmade from a special grade of glass that didn’t produce bubble and didn’t discolor. The reflecting element, inside the shade, is pure silver.
