Product description

Retro vintage glass "flycatcher" lampshade - white / textured with abstract motifs
 
This unusual retro glass hanging bowl (or "flycatcher") lampshade / light shade of c.1950s vintage - a post-war interpretation of the style of shade so typical of the pre-war suburban living room - measures approximately 27.5cm (10.85in) in diameter and 20.5cm (8.05in) deep (excluding hooks), and is conical in shape with a central "nose", with matt white finish interspersed with clear thin criss-cross lines to the interior of the main body, textured surface to the inside of the "nose", and shiny exterior with red, black and yellow handpainted abstract motifs together with twin gilt bands. The shade is supplied with a set of three reproduction brass hooks; please note that no chains are included, but suitable chains may be easily found at any good ironmonger's shop or DIY store. 
 
As this is a genuine vintage piece, there is some wear to the shade commensurate with its age, including scratching, abrasion and slight marking to the exterior, slight wear to the gilt and painted decoration, and slight wear with some blotchiness, water stains and other marks to the internal finish, whilst there are several shallow chips together with some nibbling and roughness to the rim; there are some minor manufacturing imperfections in the glass including lines and numerous tiny air bubbles. Despite these defects, however, this shade remains perfectly usable, and would provide a great finishing touch to a 1950s-style living room with a reasonably high ceiling.
