Art Deco vintage flake glass large hanging bowl lampshade / light shade - white with amber marbling (c.1930s) (SOLD)
A large c.1930s vintage Art Deco hanging bowl (or "flycatcher") lampshade / light shade with stepped base, in semi-matt white flake glass with amber marbling, measuring approximately 35.2cm (13.85in) in diameter and 16cm (6.3in) deep excluding hooks. Included with this shade is a set of three hanging chains (which may or may not be original to this shade), each measuring about 35cm (14in) in length, with traces of the original oxidised copper finish although now somewhat rusty with a few paint marks.
There is some surface wear to the shade including scratching, scuffing and marking, together with roughness, nibbling and small chips to the edges, whilst there are some imperfections in the glass including unevenness to the base (being more concave to one side than the other), lines in the glass and tiny air bubbles; the hooks, which have oxidised copper collars, are tarnished with some rust. Please note that this shade is heavier than most bowl light shades (about 2.05kg / 4.5lb excluding chains), so please ensure that your ceiling fixings can support its weight before you order!
