Art Deco vintage flake glass hanging bowl lampshade / light shade - white with grey-black marbling (c.1930s) (SOLD)
A c.1930s vintage Art Deco hanging bowl (or "flycatcher") lampshade / light shade, in matt white marbled flake glass (the marbling being predominantly grey-black but with touches of lime green, yellow and purple-brown), measuring approximately 30cm (11.8in) in diameter and 12cm (4.7in) deep excluding hooks. This shade is supplied with a set of three hanging chains, each about 50cm (19.5in) in length, which are somewhat rusty with paint marks; although old, we do not know whether or not they are original to this shade.
There is some surface wear to the shade including scratches, scuffing / abrasion and marking (including numerous paint specks, especially to the interior), some roughness to the edge with several nibbles and small chips, and a few small surface chips to the interior, whilst there are some imperfections in the glass including large air bubbles; the hooks are blackened with some rust.
