Pair of Large Ornate 1920s Gold Gilt Brass 5 Light Wall Sconce - Tivoli Theater

Tap image to advance

Here we have a pair of large ornate gold gilt brass wall sconces. These impressive sconces were removed from a local Chicago movie palace. Each sconce measures 21.5" tall x 12" wide x 8.5" deep. The theater known as the Tivoli was built in 1920 and had its grand opening in 1921. The Tivoli movie palace opened on 16 February 1921. The theater was two stories high with a painted ceiling in the lobby that was meant to resemble the Sainte-Chapelle at Versailles. The opening was a gala affair, complete with music from a 55 piece orchestra. The theater cost $2,000,000 to construct. Its lobby was two stories high and was able to hold 3,000 people. The theater, which stood just south of the southeast corner of 63rd Street and Cottage Grove Avenue, closed in 1963 and was demolished shortly thereafter. These fixtures were removed just before it was demolished. Each sconce measures 21.5" tall x 12" wide x 8.5" deep. They have been rewired and are richly plated with an antique gold finish. They have standard light bulb sockets but are shown with candelabra bulb adapters. Please scroll down to view all the pictures and feel free to ask questions.
