This pair of rare sconces were recently uncovered at the former theatre owner's estate, where they had been in storage for over fifty years.

The family held onto the sconces, the neon 'Ritz' marquee and a handful of 1930's movie posters including a never-before-seen Barbara Stanwyck poster. Movie palace architectural implements from the classic cinema era are extremely rare and hardly ever come to market.These sconces are from the golden era of Frankenstein, Dracula, King Kong, Casablanca and Wizard of Oz and would enhance any collection of cinema posters and memorabilia in an authentic display. Perfect for designers and decorators as well. Condition: Fair. This pair has mismatched finials and is missing paint on the body. Light rusting in spots where paint is missing. Corrosion on one finial. Needs rewiring. Original bulbs included, unsure if they work. Sold 'as is'. Measures: Each is approximately 35" x 17" x 8". Each weighs about 8 pounds. Original/Reproduction: Original, Color: Red
