Art Deco vintage flakestone glass large hanging bowl lampshade / light shade - white / multicoloured (c.1930s) (SOLD)
A large c.1930s vintage Art Deco hanging bowl (or "flycatcher") lampshade / light shade, in semi-matt white flakestone glass with scattered flakes / areas of deep pink / magenta, orange, green and two shades of blue, measuring approximately 35.5cm (14in) in diameter and 14.5cm (5.7in) deep excluding hooks. Included with this shade is a set of three chrome hooks and hanging chains (not original to this shade, although of the same vintage), each measuring about 46.5cm (18.3in) in length.
The white flakestones and coloured flakes are noticeably smaller and more numerous on one side of the shade than the other, whilst there are various other imperfections in the glass including numerous air bubbles (some of which are quite large) and occasional small lumps; there is some surface wear to the shade including scratching, scuffing and marking, together with roughness, nibbling and small chips to the edges (some of which may date from manufacture); there is some rust to the chains and hooks.
