Art Deco large Flycatcher/Plafonnier ceiling light with cream sides and black and gold decoration
Art Deco, also called Style Moderne, originated in the 1920s and developed into a major style in Western Europe and the United States during the 1930s and early 1940s.
Hanging glass bowl ceiling light shades became popular during the1920s through to the 1950s. They earned the name ‘Flycatcher’ for obvious reasons.
This superb Art Deco Flycatcher ceiling light comes alive when lit, its light cream sides helping to enhance the black and gold decoration. The clear frosted base has a wonderful geometric flower motif.
I have carefully restored this salvaged light to its former glory and fitted it with new brass components; chains, glass bowl hooks, 3-hook ceiling fitting, wooden pattress, lamp holder and coloured flex. The ES (E27) lampholder has been PAT tested for safety.
Each one is original and has been used, showing normal signs of wear and tear.
This large Flycatcher ceiling light comes with everything you need to easily convert your existing ceiling fitting. Wiring should be carried out by a qualified electrician.
The wooden pattress is supplied in plain varnished pine and can be painted to suit your ceiling colour or contrast with it. I like both.
1. The wooden pattress should be securely fitted to the ceiling by a qualified electrician..
2. Wiring of the 3-hook ceiling plate and lamp holder should be carried out by a qualified electrician. Please Note: The 3-hook ceiling plate will need to be earthed using the supplied earth tag and nut.
3. The bulb should not touch the bowl (approx 5cm away) and cable should be secured with the plastic grub screw.
The large Art Deco Flycatcher ceiling light comes complete with a 12w LED (Non-Dimmable) bulb.
Chain to ceiling: 45cm
Cable: Black fabric covered
