Genuine Verdigris Aged Copper Lights
Here at Ablectrics we decided to create our own brand of lighting as we wanted to get back to the old mid century British approach to manufacturing. Not a that will do attitude but products that are built with care and made using the best materials, fittings that will stand the test of time. Having had great success selling genuine vintage lights from the 1940s we wanted to bring a range to market that will also still be working in 60 years time. Through our sister company, Fraser Besant Lighting, We have a wide range of different Verdigris light fittings for you home. This finish is ideal for barns conversions where you still want the rustic look but need the practicality of modern wiring and LED technologly.
We have various sizes of ceiling roses(1-7 ways) and these can be attached to a standard ES lampholder for use with our range of Decorative LED's, a GU10 fire rated downlight and different sizes of Pendant sets. Baton holders are also possible and you can mix and match with other metal finishes for that unique look.
To create this natural aged effect takes several days to break the copper finish down, once the patina/verdigris has set in we then lacquer them by hand to seal the finish. This is a very unique and beautiful patina finish and each one we make is slightly different which adds to the character of a finished lighting design and our displays in our Bristol showroom show the variation in finishes beautifully.
Bespoke Design and Build
We offer a lighting design service for the home or office and this can include bespoke light fittings. Many of the pendants can be wired into different ceiling attachments including tracks and Metal conduit. We can also produce wall lights in various different iterations to complete a room. Please contact us for more details on any designs/enquiries you might have.
