Many of the early light switches were made in Antique Bronze and the finish became very fashionable in the Art Deco period.

The Antique Bronze range is durable and will stand the test of time. Original Antique Bronze switch plates can be seen in old buildings today still looking great a hundred years on. All socket outlets are available and are supplied with black inserts to complement the dark finish of the plate.
