Guide to switches and sockets

Our handmade switch plates are made from solid steel or brass. The plates are available in a choice of finishes, including:
  • antiqued or polished brass
  • beeswax - steel heated almost to black in the forge and dipped into beeswax
  • polished - steel wet polished to bring out a depth of colour and sealed with a clear lacquer
  • matt black - steel powder coated a uniform, hardwearing matt black
  • nickel - brass plated with nickel then flash coated with chrome, to create a reflective metallic finish
  • plain ivory - steel powder coated a uniform, hardwearing soft cream
  • our full range of hand painted finishes
  • For more information on plate finishes please see the link to finishes in the menu. The switches (as distinct from the plates) are available in brushed steel, chrome, brass, black and white.

    Plates are available in two styles: bevel edged for a clean, contemporary look or hammered for a traditional, forged look. Because the plates are handmade we can adapt the style if you wish to create your own unique look.
