Lily-Shaped Moroccan Bronze Sconce

This bronze sconce from Fes in Morocco is shaped like a blossoming lily flower. The open top allows light to spread in a uniform shaft above the lamp, whereas light escaping through the chalice-like base forms broad brushstrokes of alternating brightness and shadow below the lamp. Five small conical pendants punctuate the small, wavy valance between the sconce’s petals and the chalice.

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. Bulb and electrical fittings are not included.
