Art Deco small vintage flake glass hanging bowl lampshade / light shade - white, orange, blue and green (c.1930s-50s) (SOLD)
A c.1930s-50s vintage Art Deco small hanging bowl (or "flycatcher") lampshade / light shade, measuring approximately 26.5cm (10.45in) in diameter and 12cm (4.7in) deep excluding hooks, in flake glass (white with large orange, blue and green patches and clear veining, moulded in two layers with shiny surface both inside and out). Included with this shade is a set of three lightweight hanging chains of similar vintage, with light grey finish (not the chains shown in two of the photos), each about 23.5cm (9.25in) in length; there is considerable rust / corrosion and peeling / loss to the plating of the chains, and likewise to the chrome-plated hooks.
There is some age wear to the shade including considerable scratching and abrasion and some marks to the surface; there is a chip (about 1 x 0.6cm / 0.4 x 0.25in) to the rim, together with some nibbling and roughness (the latter dating from manufacture), although this would not be too readily noticeable when the shade is in use; there are various manufacturing irregularities including slight unevenness to the surface and air bubbles in the glass.
