Wall candleholders have been around for thousands of years. They date back to medieval times where these wall candleholders were used for lighting the hallways of castles. Although candles are rarely used for lighting in Western society, there modern ancestor, the wall sconce, is quite prominent. Today these charming pieces of decorative art are used to add a feeling of warmth and tranquility to the room whose walls adorn them.

A Tiffany wall sconce can be a functional work of art that provides illumination while flooding a room with iridescent light. They add comfort to the overall feeling of any room in which they are placed on the wall. With a small amount of effort you can add these to several rooms of your home and enjoy a simple but pleasing touch of art passed on down through the centuries.
