Jar-Shaped Moroccan Bronze Sconce

This sconce from Fes in Morocco encloses the light source completely in a cage of bronze arabesques and criss-crosses. By day it resembles a jar full of secrets; when illuminated at night it casts a mesmeric starburst of shadows across the surrounding wall surface, conjuring an atmosphere rich in mystery and fable.

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.
