1950s Large Space Age Flycatcher glass bowl ceiling light with black star design on pale yellow sides and gold lines on a frosted glass base
Hanging glass bowl ceiling light shades became popular during the 1920s through to the 1950s. They earned the name ‘Flycatcher’ for obvious reasons.
This 1950s Space Age Flycatcher ceiling lights black star design on pale yellow comes alive when lit.
The Space Age is generally considered to have begun with Sputnik 1 in 1957. The Space Age aesthetic ended the belief that 'The Sky's the Limit'.

I have carefully restored this salvaged light to its former glory and fitted it with new Brass components; chains, glass bowl hooks, 3-hook ceiling fitting, lamp holder and wooden pattress and black 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 large 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.
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 Space age Flycatcher ceiling light comes complete with a 12w LED (Non-Dimmable) bulb.
Chain to ceiling: 43cm
Cable: Olive green fabric covered
