1920s glass flycatcher ceiling light with four hand-painted brush motifs and two gold lines
Hanging glass bowl ceiling light shades became popular during the 1920s through to the 1950s. They earned the name ‘Flycatcher’ for obvious reasons.
Beautiful 1920s white cone shaped lampshade with two gold lines on the bottom and four hand-painted brush patterns (gold black and silver) and a faded peach tint going around the top of the shade.
This early 20th century glass bowl light would fit comfortably in both a contemporary and a Mid-century Modern 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 Black fabric flex. The ES (E27) lampholder has been PAT tested for safety.
One small chip on the inner rim has been carefully diamond ground and repainted as part of the refurbishment (this cannot be seen when hung and does not affect the integrity of the shade).
Each one is original and has been used, showing normal signs of wear and tear.
This 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.
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).
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 1920s Flycatcher ceiling light comes complete with a 12w LED (Non-Dimmable) bulb.
Chain to ceiling: 40cm
Cable: Black fabric covered
