Hello, Brass sconces with glass globes that were originally used on a train and then converted to electricity in the 20th century can sell for a high average of $350 - $500 each. I would be able to further confirm for you if you are able to send images at a later date. This question remains open even after you leave a rating by clicking the stars and there is not an additional charge to add photos here. ~Nora
