Double-Coffer Moroccan Bronze Sconce

This bronze sconce from Fes in Morocco consists of two stacked rectangular coffers. The upper coffer is open at the top to direct most of the light upwards, thus providing ample illumination. The cut metalwork on the faces of both coffers filters light sideways into streaky shadow patterns reminiscent of a comet’s tail.

The term “sconce” is derived from the Old French esconce, a word used to denote a lantern, or sometimes a hidden or protected space. A sconce is a decorative bracket to affix a candlestick or light fixture to a wall. It often directs light upwards, thus endowing the room or hallway it adorns with muted and comfortable lighting. Ornate sconces also double as décor items, adding character and function to both interior and exterior spaces. Moroccan sconces come in a variety of shapes and designs, and are known to conjure a dreamy vibe by casting complex shadow patterns.

The sconce can be mounted on either an interior wall or a covered exterior wall. Electrical fittings are included. Bulb not included.
