Art Deco Gustave Villaret Sconces -- Mine!

I think I have some sort of cosmic connection to Gustave Villaret, a 1920s era designer. After my great disappointment at not having won the sconces by Villaret a few weeks back, I feared we would never find another set. But on a whim, I decided to surf eBay a few nights ago, and the very first set that came up under my search term "art deco sconces" was this pair:


Not the same set, but there is no mistaking the designer. Now, I am always searching for light fixtures from this series, and they are very rare. To find two sets in the same month, rare indeed. This time, I was the only bidder, so we got them. And they'll go in my mom's sewing room. To see the others we have from this series, go here, here, here, or here.

I think that will be it for this series, there's no other place to put any more!

Congratulations on winning the bid and I'm sure the sconces will make your mother happy when she's busy in her sewing room.
