Art Deco vintage flakestone glass large hanging bowl lampshade / light shade - white, yellow and orange (c.1920s-30s) (SOLD)
A large c.1920s-30s vintage Art Deco flakestone glass hanging bowl (or "flycatcher") lampshade / light shade, with shiny surface both inside and out, moulded in three or four layers with an outer layer with large white flakestones over a pale yellow layer with orange marbling and an inner white opal layer, measuring approximately 35cm (13.8in) in diameter excluding hooks and 12cm (4.7in) deep. Included with this shade is a set of three brass chains (which may or may not be original to this shade), each measuring about 46cm (18in) in length, with verdigris in places.
There is some surface wear to the shade including numerous scratches, scuffs and slight marks both inside and out, together with roughness and nibbling to the edges and several chips up to 1cm (0.4in) long to the inner edge, whilst there are some imperfections in the glass (especially to the inner opal layer which is somewhat uneven in surface with numerous small lumps and bumps); the hooks are somewhat rusty with verdigris to the collars. Please note that this shade is heavier than most bowl light shades (about 1.65kg / 3.65lb excluding chains), so please ensure that your ceiling fixings can support its weight before you order!
