This wall sconce is Lightcrafter's take on a traditional Mexican wall light with marbles. The difference is, ours is made with copper instead of tin and thus will not rust and ruin your exterior wall! Also this light, as all our others, come already lamped with a UL listed porcelain duplex socket for up and down lighting. You may even choose the color marbles you want your in fixture. This wall sconce may be used as an interior lamp or exterior wall sconce. If the light fixture is well covered by an eave or roof no additional lens is required. In a wet location be sure to choose either a clear lens or an opaque cover to protect the socket and bulbs. LED bulbs work fine in all our fixtures.
Dark Sky Wall sconces are suitable (or can be modified) for use in localities where there is a dark sky ordinance in effect. "Dark sky" compliant when selecting the optional opaque (solid metal) top option. If you want light to emit upwards just select the clear or open top.
The copper fixtures are typically sealed with an industrial lacquer for lasting beauty. They will not continue to patina unless you choose raw copper or ask us to forego the sealer. All Lightcrafters lighting mounts to any standard junction box in minutes.

Choosing LED vs incandescent bulbs: Generally speaking, LED bulbs are preferable over incandescent bulbs. Here are a few considerations:
- Use LED bulbs when the light will be utilized for a significantly. Due to the initial cost of the bulb, the financial advantage is diminished when the lamp is used infrequently.
- Clear and omni-directional bulbs are key to getting interesting patterns thru the sides of the fixtures as shown on our website.
- LED bulbs often do not play nicely with dimmers. They may flicker and/or not dim as low as incandescent bulbs. Be sure to use the bulb manufacturer’s suggested dimmer.
- Incandescent bulbs present no issues when it comes to dimming.
