There's been several discussions on this and some even have some pics-have fun and explore.

Go to Liz's Antique hardware on La Brea. They have new replicas of the exterior lights that are almost identical to the original lights on my 1962 Neutra. They are sort of funnel shaped and quite cool.

This probably isn't the most "pure" lighting solution but it was really inexpensive ($30.82) and I think it actually matches the house pretty well:

Those aren't bad. They've been making them since the 50's at least

Here's another photo of a Swivelier light fixture. This is considered an exterior duel spot by Swivelier. But I've mounted several of these (in addition to the single spot version) around my house as wall sconces....

Hope that's helpful.

Vintage sconces

Hi Blonddude,

I have a pair of these for sale

They are very well made vintage outdoor sconces made with glass and copper. I bought them in France but I believe they come from Italy.
Let me know if you need more info.
You can have a look at our website at
