Art Deco vintage flake glass large hanging bowl lampshade / light shade - dusky pink with marbling (c.1920s-30s) (SOLD)
A large and heavy c.1920s-30s vintage Art Deco hanging bowl (or "flycatcher") lampshade / light shade, in dusky pink flake glass with grey and pale red marbling, measuring approximately 35cm (13.8in) in diameter and 14.5cm (5.7in) deep. Included with this shade is a set of three brass hanging chains, each measuring about 39cm (15.5in) in length, which are probably not original as they do not match the blackened metal of the hooks.
There is some surface wear to the shade including numerous scratches and scuffs and some marking (especially to the interior) together with small chips and nibbles to the rim, whilst there are numerous air bubbles in the glass; the hooks, besides being blackened with age, have some surface rust. Please note that this shade is heavier than most bowl light shades (about 2.2kg / 4.9lb including chains), so please ensure that your ceiling fixings can support its weight before you order!
