1950s Atomic Wall Sconce Light Score!

By Sara In AZ

I picked up this retro, atomic looking light a few weeks ago and I really love it! Honestly, to me there is nothing like an amazing vintage light….they just don’t make them like this anymore!

The top needed new brass cap ends for the posts that hold in the glass shade.

I am fairly certain this is an outdoor light….it was quite dirty! I SO wish the old label hadn’t fallen off, I would LOVE to know who made this!

I bought some new brass end cap balls.

And then I got to work cleaning…..I know it is hard to tell from the pictures, but it really is A LOT cleaner now!

I put 2 new brass end cap balls on the posts.

And now we’ve got one wild looking atomic light ready to use!

I totally want to use this light one day…..can’t you all just picture on the front porch of some kitschy retro ranch!

    Awesome! I am on the hunt for a pair of indoor sconce lights for my living room, to replace the gross 90’s ones that are there now. (Wish I knew what was there originally!) Haven’t found the right ones yet, tho.

    Oh Sara I love that light! It would look cool in a bathroom too I think? with a gold flecked counter top 🙂 Great find!
