1920s-1950s multi-coloured flakestone glass flycatcher ceiling light with fantastic colouring and beautiful soft ribbed shape

Hanging glass bowl ceiling light shades became popular during the 1920s through to the 1950s. They earned the name ‘Flycatcher’ for obvious reasons.

This multi-coloured flakestone glass flycatcher looks as good lit or unlit. The patterns are unique and no two flycatchers are identical.

This early 20th century glass bow light could be that finishing touch to your new or existing interior.

I have carefully restored this salvaged light to its former glory and fitted it with new Antique brass components; chains, glass bowl hooks, 3-hook ceiling fitting, wooden pattress, lamp holder and sapphire blue fabric 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.

Two small chips on the rim have been carefully diamond ground as part of the refurbishment (these can not be seen when hung and do not affect the integrity of the shade)

This vintage 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.

The flycatcher is fixed to the ceiling with a circular 3 hook ceiling rose and is supported by 3 chains. The height of the flycatcher can be adjusted when fitting by removing a number links from the chains (I suggest no more than 2 to 3 links).

Fitting instructions.

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.

This Art Deco Flycatcher ceiling light comes complete with a 12w LED (Non-Dimmable) bulb.
