Hand-made to order, the Marylou wall lamp is named after a character from Kerouac's 'On The Road.' She is described as "a sharp golden beauty," and I thought that was fitting :)

I love this fixture because it is incredibly versatile. It looks fantastic hanging over desks or nightstands, and also is very useful for adding accent light over book cases or artwork.

About the fixture:

• I handcraft each fixture from solid brass in my Southern California studio. The brass is hand-polished and finished with a matte microcrystalline wax.

• Articulating head allows you to point the light exactly where you need it most. Swivel mechanism rotates 360 degrees and pivots 90 degrees

• Select either a flat backplate or a cast brass wall flange. The wall flange is made of investment cast brass and includes solid brass screws. The flat backplate option is a solid-brass 4" backplate that has a concealed mounting system. All mounting hardware is included

• Antique-replica cloth covered twist cord completes the design. In-line toggle switch is located 18" down the cord. Available in black, white, sand, or silver. See photo 10 for cord color options


250v max. Compatible with both US and European voltage systems. Ships with standard North American Plug


UL listed E26 porcelain socket. For use with LED bulb, or 40 watt max. incandescent. Bulb sold separately

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

As with life, be gentle. Don't use any harsh chemicals. If left untouched, brass will darken and develop a patina with age. If you feel the need to brighten your brass to it's original hue, you can use a gentle metal polish. I recommend a product called Brasso, which can be found at your local hardware store.

For some more in-depth information, check out my website ( there is a whole super-nerdy blog post about caring for natural brass :)

I have placed an order, when will it ship?

I work hard to keep the lead-times listed on Etsy as up to date as possible. You can find these at the top of the "shipping and policies" tab. Unless you are otherwise notified, your order will ship within the listed timeline.

If you are in need of a rush order, please send me a message before placing your order :)

Can I customize this fixture?

YES! Absolutely. Common customizations include changing the cord color, the switch mechanism, or dimensions. Please shoot me a message with any customization requests prior to placing your order.

Talk to me about your brass

Well, okay! My fixtures are made from solid brass that is not lacquered. The brass is polished by hand, and then covered in a thin layer of artisanal microcrystalline wax (Theres a $10 word for ya). This leaves the fixture with a deep, matte luster. The brass will darken and patina with age. I absolutely love the look of naturally aged brass, but if you prefer the bright gold you can clean it up with Brasso or Barkeepers Friend every six months or so.

I am a blogger, can you send me a free product in exchange for promotion?

Thank you so much for showing me some love! Please blog about my studio - it makes me feel so good!! Buuuut, unfortunately I cannot offer free product in exchange.

Can I have my order expedited?

Sometimes. Rush production is sometimes available for an additional 20%. If you are interested in having your items expedited, please send me a message before placing an order :)

The sconce's are great and exactly what we were looking for. Made with quality and easy to install (we had to put one into a stud and the other into drywall). It makes for some soft reading light and I like that the turn and adjust with ease. We used the G16.5 bulbs and they sit outside the globe just slightly, but the par16 bulb sits inside it all the way. We found both bulbs at our local hardware store.

Amazingly well-made, really beautiful. Swapped out the plug for a 3amp fused UK on, and works great. Fitting rated up to 250v

We bought the brass hooks and MaryLou plugin wall sconces and LOVE all of them!!

Flawless, exactly as pictured. I bought two for either side of the bed and they are perfect. They have a mid-century look to them which goes perfectly with my oak headboard. They have a solid, high quality feel to them.
