Again, I’m picking things up off the street. I wasn’t sure what these wood and acrylic sandwiches were when I first saw them. When I realized they were light fixtures I knew I was carrying them home.
I walked and inspected. I was excited to see that they were solid walnut and made in San Francisco by the Kustom Lighting and Manufacturing. I haven’t been able to find any information on the (former?) company, but I think they would be pleased with my restoration. I disassembled them completely, refinished the walnut panels and replaced the acrylic lenses. They were designed as sconces, but the previous owner had them set up as lamps with cords and cork feet. The cord is easily removable, so they will work great either way.
