Stand for Sconce

Postby josie » Mon Aug 07, 2017 8:29 pm

I'm looking for a table top stand for a sconce the size of Bullseye's sconce mold. Any suggestions?

How do you want to display it? Will it have a light/candle behind it so it would be like a wall sconce but on a table top like a tea light would be? Maybe you are wanting to just display the glass on edge like the S curve molded glass. What type of thing you are looking for?

If I could find a fixture that was electrified, like a wall unit but for the table, that would be great. Otherwise it would be on edge with or without a candle. That would be stabilized and make it a display. Thanks

hi josie,
try looking at ikea, especially if there i a store near you. you can check the actual base(s) for some of the table lamps to see size, stability, etc. i suggest them because they had (have?) a wall sconce that actually fits the bullseye sconce mold so you use the base and just substitute your glass....but for a table lamp, esp. if you're looking for stability, i'd think you'd want to check actual fixture. also, ikea won't ship lighting fixtures in many states, so you'd have to pick up in person.
some of the numerous online lighting places may have lighting that will be on a good-for-you base.

Thanks, I am not near an Ikea store. The person this is going to is, he may be able to take it to the store and fit it and then give me some feedback. :-D

How about stabilizing it on a base of wood (or other material such as granite scrap) and placing one of those battery operated candles behind it. They give a nice soft glow or flicker like a candle. Nice look with no wiring or proximity to outlet required.

I have a tutorial where I have made a base with glass:

Sweet. I had two disks from a light fixture that would have been perfect. I've used them in another project. I'll keep my eye out for more.
Thanks
