Original large white glass Art Deco Flycatcher glass bowl ceiling light with magenta marbling

Regular price £295.00 £0.00
Hanging glass bowl ceiling light shades became popular during the 1920s through to the 1950s. They earned the name ‘Flycatcher’ for obvious reasons.

The attractive shape and red marbling make this light look as good lit or unlit.

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 and lamp holder. It has a new wooden pattress and is fitted with burgundy 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.
Several small chips on the rim have been carefully diamond ground as part of the refurbishment (this can not be seen when hung and does not affect the integrity of the shade).

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).

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 Art Deco Flycatcher ceiling light comes complete with a 12w LED (Dimmable) bulb.
