Swedish king Gustaf V bought the first two my grandfather made, as a wedding gift to Prince Gustav Adolf of Sweden and Sibylla. Hence it’s name. But this noble wall sconce shines just as nicely in the homes of ordinary citizens. The base is handmade in brass and have later been tinned. Pewter (tin) is soft and sensitive to heat and with a base, made of brass, the wall sconce will stand for safety if you forget to blow out the candle. It measures 21 cm ø. This product you don’t need to polish. Just wash it with lukewarm water if needed. You can use a standard candle for this wall sconce. When ordering this item a candle is included.
