Semi-Cylindrical Moroccan Bronze Sconce

In this bronze sconce from Fes in Morocco, a delicate rosette anchors a dense grove of interlacing arabesques. A parchment lining behind the cylindrical surface ensures that the light is diffused evenly, while the perforated top and bottom panels cast playful, atmospheric shadows above and below the sconce.

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.
