Wall-mounted light fixtures, or "sconces", can add a unique sense of elegance and sophistication to your home while providing general, task or accent lighting. They can be used in virtually any area of your home whether over the living room mantle or the buffet in the dining room, providing safe, easy navigation for the stairway and hallway, complementing the ceiling fixture in the family room, lighting up either side of the mirror in the guest powder room or providing reading light next to your bed.
Wherever you install your wall sconces, be sure they're hung high enough that an average height person won't see the bulbs. And in a walkway, be sure the fixture doesn't protrude too far out from the wall.
About Lead Crystal
For centuries, the crystal has been a symbol of elegance, class and status. Named for the Greek word for ice, "krystallos", crystal lighting possesses an ethereal beauty that has enchanted mankind throughout the ages.
A piece of crystal is like a diamond in that its value depends on the quality of its material and how it is cut. Lead is what sets crystal apart from glass. When added to glass, lead enhances its optical quality giving it superior light reflecting capabilities that highlight facets and make it more brilliant. For glass to be called "crystal", it must contain at least one percent lead in the United States and at least 4 percent in Europe. Full-lead crystal contains between 24 percent and 32 percent lead. The higher the lead content in the glass, the more the lead crystal glass is worth.
The brilliance of a piece of crystal is also affected by how it is cut and polished as well as the shape. Cut glass can be given attractive designs or angles known as facets to increase its light refraction quality. Crystal can be hand-cut, machine-cut or molded. It can be polished using a wood wheel with marble dust, by hand or by machine. And it can be given a wide range of shapes from pendelouques and icicles to baguettes and octagons. And colors range from clear to any color in the rainbow. Just as with a diamond ring, you'll need to find your favorite cut, clarity and color.
Today, you'll find crystal light fixtures appropriate for a myriad of applications as well as styles. From opulent cast brass frames dripping with large pendeloques to simple frames highlighted by a few geometrically shaped crystals. There's an option for every style as well as any budget.
To keep crystal sparkling, it is important to care for it properly. The best way to keep it clean is to add it to your weekly dusting routine. Lightly dust the crystals on your fixture with a feather duster or a soft brush. If it becomes dull and dusty, it may require that you wipe each crystal with a damp chamois. Be sure not to get any moisture on the frame as this may damage the finish. Never put fixture crystals in the dishwasher as it will ruin the metal hanging clips and may damage the crystal itself.
