ChiPPy Cast Iron wall sconce

while on a day trip this past summer i stopped at a barn sale in pennsylvania. ohhh so many goodies were stashed away in that barn. if i only had that truck i've been dreaming of. at the time i was not looking to aquire any more "things". i did pick up this light fixture and a few smalls. i cleaned the layers of "stuff" off and pulled out the wires, the type covered in cloth. i'm guessing this is from the 20's or 30's. i loved how it cleaned up. all chippy'tique, it's new life shall be a candle holder. and it's being offered on my etsy.
