Mounted on a classic oak pattress, these reproduction Bakelite switches provide nostalgic appeal whilst meeting modern safety standards. Inspired by the 1920's era they have also proved popular in any situation where a discreet alternative to brass is required.
These Bakelite switches epitomise the 'Arts & Crafts' movement of the turn of the last century that were widely in use right up until the 1960's. Unfortunately, the original Bakelite switches were ripped out in favour of the 'new modern' white plastic and those that escaped this fate, no longer apply to modern regulations. Our Bakelite switches are easy to install and are available with or without the solid oak pattress, which fit to a standard metal wall box using our 'unique to Bromleighs' adaptor kit. To complement the overall look, Bakelite pendants and Pull switches are also available.
Intermediate switches - We can recommend the Period Collection switch with a black/brown or bronze dome, black base and a wood pattress as an Intermediate switch to match this collection.
