1940s-1950s Art Deco flakestone flycatcher glass ceiling light shade with beautiful green marbling and soft contoured sides
1920s-1950s Art Deco flakestone flycatcher glass ceiling light shade with beautiful green marbling
Hanging glass bowl ceiling light shades became popular during the 1920s through to the 1950s. They earned the name ‘Flycatcher’ for obvious reasons.
The epitome of 1920s-1950s lighting this green marbled flycatcher looks as good lit or unlit. The pattern is unique and no two flycatchers are identical.
This excellent light could become the centre of your vintage interior.
I have carefully restored this salvaged light to its former glory and fitted it with new dark bronze components; chains, glass bowl hooks, 3-hook ceiling fitting, wooden pattress, lamp holder and Emerald green 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 1940s-1950s 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 stained or 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 Art Deco Flycatcher ceiling light comes complete with a 12w LED (Non-Dimmable) bulb.
Chain to ceiling: 46cm
Cable: Emerald green fabric covered
