OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Two lighting sconces that were once in the Oklahoma state Senate gallery have been restored and installed in the entrance of the Senate Chamber.

The sconces were found in June 2013 by state Senate workers who were moving computer tables and saw an opening into a space in the attic of the Senate’s fifth floor ceiling. A total of 11 of the fixtures that were originally in the Capitol were found and another was later discovered in a storage space in the state House.

Another sconce was found by a Norman couple who had purchased it at a swap meet about 40 years ago and realized what it is after seeing news coverage of the discovery of the other sconces.
