1940s-1950s small white glass flycatcher ceiling light with subtle green and orange marbling
Regular price £225.00
1940s-1950s small white glass flycatcher ceiling light with subtle green and orange marblingAffectionately known as ‘flycatchers’, these hanging glass bowl ceiling light shades became popular during the 1920s through to the 1950s.
The marbling in this vintage flycatcher comes alive when lit, the patterns are unique and no two are identical. This light could be the perfect choice for an 1940s-1950s styled 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 and lamp holder. It has a new wooden pattress and is fitted with antique gold 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.
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. 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).
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 earth tag.
3. The bulb should not touch the bowl (approx 5cm away) and cable should be secured by tightening the cord grip.
This 1940s-1950s Flycatcher ceiling light comes complete with a 12w LED (Dimmable) bulb.
Chain to ceiling: 43cm
Cable: Antique gold fabric covered
