1950s small white, green and orange marbled flycatcher glass bowl ceiling light
1950s small white, green and orange marbled flycatcher glass bowl ceiling light with rounded sides
Hanging glass bowl ceiling light shades became popular during the 1920s through to the 1950s. They earned the name ‘Flycatcher’ for obvious reasons.
This white glass flycatcher with green and orange marbling looks as good lit or unlit. The marbling is unique and no two flycatchers are identical.
This light would fit comfortably in both a contemporary or vintage interior.
I have carefully restored this salvaged light to its former glory and fitted it with new chrome components; chains, glass bowl hooks, 3-hook ceiling fitting, wooden pattress, lamp holder and orange 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 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 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 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 1950s Flycatcher ceiling light comes complete with a 12w LED (Non-Dimmable) bulb.
Chain to ceiling: 43cm
Cable: Orange fabric covered
