All wiring has been replaced with new. New finials have been also been provided. These sconces utilize standard medium base Edison T10 tube shaped light bulbs (not included).
Approximate dimensions are as follows. Glass cylinder: 2.5 Diameter X 5 High. Depth from wall: 5.5. NOTE: One of the sconces originally had an electrical outlet on the underside, as shown.This socket has been disabled for safety reasons. The power wires have been capped but remain in place.
