The other day; I'm in downtown Vancouver, in a high end architectural antique shop. Stain glass windows with prices tags in the $5000.00 to $65,000.00 range and lights from $500.00 to $12,000.00. Nothing newer than 1920's.

I spotted this 1890's cast iron wall sconce; well I had to have it. It was sorta like love at first sight...well I left the shop feeling like I had just paid for a wedding.

It's a brute, it weighs over 100 pounds. It is 38" in length without the globe. It is 19" deep. The base that secures it to the wall is 16" in diameter. By far one of the hardest things I've hung up in the shop by myself!!!! My arms were pretty exhausted by the time I had it hung on the wall. Luckily, my 1 year old daughter pulled up just at the right time to help with the clean up.

The one piece Texaco globe goes perfectly with the wall sconce.

There were two of those if not the same ones at the Monroe swap meet last year in the fall. They were great. Looks great.

Really like this piece Dave, but do me a favor and get it off that plywood and onto the brick outside your house. Way to beautiful a piece to be mounted to chip board.

Thanks for all the comments. Best, little helper..ever. Very proud of her.

Graeme, If I had two of them...I would mount them outside the house. Until I build my new building it is going to stay on the chip board.

Marxmobilegas, I like coke buttons, here's some of my other coke buttons.

The Canadian members got to see my signs on the Canadian Pickers episode. Maybe, I'll use this thread to share my sign collection with the rest of the members. I'll post a few pictures everyday for the next week or so.

Hope you enjoy the photo's.
