A Modern Take on Wrought Iron Wall Sconces


Scrolled Taper Wall Sconce with Glass Today's contemporary wall sconces have their historical roots in ancient Egyptian, where wall mounted lights were used in temples, tombs and hallways. Wrought iron wall sconces are also closely tied to the castles of Renaissance and Medieval Europe. The Scrolled Taper Wall Sconce with Glass by Hubbardton Forge is a modern interpretation of those European sconces, using ancient hand-forging methods.

The Scrolled Taper shows a curvy wrought iron body in a variety of finishes from black to satin steel and a hand-blown glass bowl shade. The shade is offered in Saffra which is a buttery mottled glass, in acid-etched Stone or showy Opal.
