The first wall sconces appeared during Antiquity in Roman villas and pharaohs’ palaces. During the Middle Ages, the wall sconce was a rest for a removable torch. From the 17th century on, the wall sconce became a decorative piece. The word wall sconce refers to a single or multiple arms light fixture. It applies to Louis XVI wall sconces as well as designers such as Arlus, Venini, Baguès, Tomaso Barbi, or Mario Torrgiani. It may include a plate or a light globe hanging on the wall, like Barovier or Jacques Biny wall sconces. The Scandinavian designers started creating wall sconces as early as the beginning of the 20tn century. Names like Svend Aage Holm Sorensen or Jakobsson are in high demand nowadays. Famous factories and brands specialized in lighting like Baguès, Maison Charles or Poliarte used all kinds of shapes and materials for their creations.
