When lighting a room was not as easy as it is now, wall sconces were an efficient solution to the problem. The sconces were hung on walls, higher up than candelabra, so that light was well radiated into the surrounding space. Clearly, our pewter wall sconces no longer have the sole function of lighting a room; they are used to decorate the walls of your home in a simple and elegant way. In an emergency, however, they could take up their ancient function once again, allowing us to experience briefly the type of atmosphere to which we are no longer accustomed, as well as bringing a magical charm to the home. Each of our pewter home décor items is entirely handmade by our artisans, and stamped with the GT brand name, which is our guarantee of both high quality alloy and an excellent finish.
