The wall sconce is one of the earliest forms of lighting used in domestic and public spaces. First recorded in Classic antiquity as simple brackets to hold torches, it was during the Middle Ages that the more elaborate forms we now recognise started to be produced, arising from the use of these on the walls of churches. Silver examples were first seen during the 17th Century, and since their inception they have remained incredibly popular items, sought after by interior designers and collectors alike.
