Impressive extra large Art Deco pearlescent white & pink marbled glass flycatcher light shade

Affectionately known as ‘flycatchers’, these hanging glass bowl ceiling light shades became popular during the 1920s through to the 1950s.

This extra large Flycatcher is one of the largest ceiling lights I have had the pleasure to restore. The pearlescent finish and dark pink marbling looks amazing lit or unlit. Glass Flycatcher patterns are unique and no two are identical.

A beautiful domed shape combine with the pearlescent white glass and pink marbling to make this ceiling light a perfect example of the Art Deco design period.

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 Burgundy fabric flex. The original decorative bowl hooks have been lovingly restored. The ES (E27) lampholder has been PAT tested for safety.

There is a number of small original manufacturing marks on the inner rim (these 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).

Fitting instructions.

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.

3. The bulb should not touch the bowl (approx 5cm away) and cable should be secured by tightening the cord grip.

This extra large Art Deco glass flycatcher comes complete with a 12w LED (Dimmable) bulb.
