I fell in love with a Mid-century brass eyeball sconce that I found in a vintage shop several years ago. There was no way that I could afford that vintage piece, so I set out to make one for myself. The result is this simple design, complete with an LED bulb, that is the perfect way to brighten up your bedroom, living room, entryway, or reading nook.
- Handmade from solid brass. I hand-polish and finish the brass with a thin layer of microcrystalline wax. Over time the brass will darken and patina
- 340 degree swivel and 90 degree pivot allows you to point your light precisely where it is needed
- Intended for hard-wiring into a wall electrical box. Standard crossbar included
- Soft-wired (plug-in) version available in my shop
- Warm white LED bulb included, keeping the fixture cool to the touch
- 5" diameter backplate, 5" diameter shade, 11.5" maximum projection

As with life, be gentle. Don't use any harsh chemicals. If left untouched, brass will darken and develop a patina with age. If you feel the need to brighten your brass to it's original hue, you can use a gentle metal polish. I recommend a product called Brasso, which can be found at your local hardware store.

YES! Absolutely. Common customizations include changing the cord color, the switch mechanism, or dimensions. Please shoot me a message with any customization requests prior to placing your order.
Well, okay! My fixtures are made from solid brass that is not lacquered. The brass is polished by hand, and then covered in a thin layer of artisanal microcrystalline wax (Theres a $10 word for ya). This leaves the fixture with a deep, matte luster. The brass will darken and patina with age. I absolutely love the look of naturally aged brass, but if you prefer the bright gold you can clean it up with Brasso or Barkeepers Friend every six months or so.
