STAN HYWET MUSIC ROOM Sconce and Candlelight Lampshades

Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens is located in Akron, Ohio.  The “home” is the former American Country Estate of F.A. Seiberling, co-founder of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company.  

Stan Hywet historic estate is restoring the Music Room.  I have the honor of restoring all the sconce and chandelier shades in the Music Room.

Stan Hywet Music Room Sconce and Candlelight Lampshades

 

Three (3) file boxes hold all 102 shades!   There are 66 sconce shades that go around the room.  Three chandeliers hold 12 shades each for a total of 36 candlelight shades.

My first plan of action is to clean the shades to see what color they actually are!  I will only clean using a lint roller and a sweeper.   I will use a lint roller first  to keep the dust down to a minimum.  There is a black soot dust on the shades due to coal heat.  This is a clear indication of “historic” authenticity!

As I am dismantling these historic shades, I realized I did not have a visual of what the chandelier and sconce lamp pieces actually looked like.

Upon request, Stan Hywet curators sent pictures of the the lighting fixtures.  The following are pictures of the room in its’ entirety and a picture of the lighting fixture.
