Tin 'Mirror' Sconce

Tin 'Mirror' Sconce

This sconce is reproduced from an original that was found in the Geer homestead in Vermont. Dating back to the 1800's it is patterned after an early glass mirror sconce. Many of the round, dished reflectors of these sconces were covered with numerous
hand-cut and carefully fitted small, trapezoidal shaped pieces of mirrored glass. Due to the labor involved in their construction, they were very costly. The reflector of the tin 'mirror' sconce was relatively quickly crafted using a creasing swedge, and thus, this sconce was more affordably priced at probably one-quarter the cost of the glass mirror sconce.
