50S 60S ORIGINAL VINTAGE MID CENTURY JOHN SYLVIA REID ROTAFLEX CREAM LAMPSHADE

This fantastic hanging lampshade is part of the Candy range of lamps and shades, produced by Rotaflex / Heifetz in the 1950s. Made of a cellulose acetate (plastic), but often mistaken for glass until touched. The fine ribbed design is elegant and when illuminated gives off a warm inviting glow. No maker mark. Rotaflex was a british lighting company who manufactured, in particular, John & Sylvia Reid’s designs. Rotaflex was started by Bernard Stern around 1953 and also produced spun acetate lamps, sometime after the mid 50’s John & Sylvia Reid were employed and added new designs as some of the earlier designs became dated and were phased out. Rotaflex lightening was distributed overseas mainly around Europe and US. Overall this shade will certainly be an amazing addition to any Mid Century inspired room. Please note: ceiling attachment/wiring not included.

Dimensions: D 26cm, H 25cm

Price: £55
