I do not know if that was original or if someone has painted them. I have not tried to clean these, it does appear that there is some white paint on the sides where someone may have painted in the past while they were hanging in the wall.Please note that one of the metal pull string is missing the bottom piece. Obviously I can not guarantee that these function as electric sconces! These are truly amazing pieces!
