☞ BESPOKE: Frosted Flame Sconces
We have a few antique lighting catalogs lying around and noticed the Victorian flame shades in the past. Yet we'd never seen them on an actual building. Walking by the Hamilton Heights historic district recently, our search finally ended with No. 473 West 143rd Street, between Amsterdam and Convent Avenues. Although a little odd when presented in a catalog lineup, these frosted shades in actuality provide a great dose of drama and character to any historic facade.
