120 year old bespoke hand made railway sleep light

This is a custom made light fitting, we can make them to order. The fitting started as a solid 120 year old British railway sleeper. It was then taken to a local stonemason who spent over 15 hours hand filing the sleeper out from behind to reduce the weight. The whole sleeper has been hollowed out like a boat. This also gave us space behind to fix the lighting junction boxes and cable. We then took the sleeper to a local blacksmiths who hand forged the iron brackets which hold the body of the sleeper and provide the fixing hooks for the chain supports. He also made the custom metal ceiling plate from which the mains cable comes. The whole fitting weighs over 30kg so should be supported from a solid beam or RSJ. We then wired the 10 pendant drops and wrapped them around the width of the wood. We chose the dark aged brown twisted vintage look cable complimented with antique lamp holders. This fitting is a one off piece. Please allow up to 8 weeks for us to make you one. It would suit a grand entrance way to a hotel, a dining area in a barn conversion or a vintage look bar or restaurant.

We have this piece on display in our Bristol showroom and invite you to come down and see it. The photos do not do it justice.
