I have been in the antiques business since 1982, am originally from Connecticut and now living in Michigan. My first love is Americana and country smalls and sell at Midwest shows and sometimes on Ebay under ID ctyankee6. I travel to New England twice a year for choice antiques. I want you to be pleased with your purchase so additional photos of items upon request (prices below do not include shipping) I ship Priority Mail insured (USA sales only). I do offer returns within 3 days of receipt. Please email me first. I do not refund shipping costs. Michigan residents add 6% sales tax, or provide MI tax number. I accept checks (must hold until clear), money orders or Paypal (preferred). All offers considered. Thank you for visiting! I try to list one item every day at 7 PM EST.

Large & Early Tin Candle Sconce

Just found at the Heartland Antique Show, I'm pleased to offer a large tin candle sconce with fancy cut-outs, punching and decorative edges. The oval piece in the middle never had a mirror but when new it would have reflected the light just as well. It is a separate piece and has been re-soldered several times in back. It is still not solidly attached but not noticeable when hanging. Rolled tin candle cup and pan. The sconce measures 12-1/2" wide x 20-1/2" tall.
