Definition: Sconce

Not as tasty as scones but also available in seemingly infinite varieties, sconces are electric light or candle fixtures that are mounted on a wall, rather than hung from the ceiling. Sconces are generally placed about three-quarters of the way up a wall, and depending on the shape of the fixture, the light can be projected upwards, downwards, or outwards.
