The Hudson Sconce
The Hudson Sconce
Brass Sconce Lamp
Timeless brass and clean lines define this simple but elegant wall sconce. The shallow depth and squared edge of the round backplate add a minimalist tone, while the graceful curve of the arm gives a nod to traditional American design. At once modern and classic, the Hudson Sconce perfectly compliments a wide array of styles. We love the warmth of it with this large scale frosted globe bulb, but of course, any medium base bulb may be used to add your own personal touch.

Finish Details - Unlacquered copper or brass is left in its raw, natural state. Oxidization is normal, and to be expected. This means that the canopy and cages, once given the final cleaning before packing, will begin to turn from bright shiny pink (copper) or gold (brass) to orangeish, and eventually to dark brown, and even green. This is the natural progression of the patina, and may take anywhere from a month to several years, depending on the environmental conditions surrounding it. The beautiful, natural patina of these metals is usually a desirable benefit to the material. If you choose to leave the fixture unlacquered as we suggest, then you will always have the option of either letting it naturally patina and age, or polishing it back to a bright "new" finish (steel wool or suitable metal polish is usually the simplest way to accomplish this). If you desire for the copper or brass components of your light to remain bright and shiny for as long as possible, select the lacquered finish. We will coat the metal with a lacquer spray that will protect it from oxidization, but there is an additional fee for this service. The lacquer will usually last for several years, but may eventually wear off.
Installation Type -
Hardwire version mounts directly to the wall junction and is the version pictured in the photo.
Plug-in variant comes with a 1" deep backplate, changing the overall fixture projection to 7" from the wall, and a long 10 ft. antique twist cord exiting the fixture backplate from the bottom. The fixture is fitted with an on/off switch on the backplate and a plug on the cord. Please note that plug-in versions are not UL listed.
