Historically a manufacturer of British maritime vessels, the Original BTC/Davey Lighting Cargo Cluster Wall/Ceiling Light is directly styled after utilitarian ship deck lighting. Overtly industrial, the galvanized steel shade and cage is hand-spun in the metal works factories of Birmingham, continuing the tradition of authentic British-made products closely associated with the Davey Lighting brand. A cluster of six light sources is guarded by the external cage, reflecting a brilliant and functional down light in either a wall or ceiling application.
Founded in 1990 by Peter Bowles, Original BTC is a lighting company rooted in national pride, manufacturing classic and industrial British design for contemporary homes. Encouraging local enterprise, all products are exclusively produced in the UK, utilizing factories in Oxford, Birmingham and Stoke-on-Trent to hand-produce and assemble the fine bone china, aluminum and lighting components used in Original BTC fixtures. In 2010, Bowles acquired Davey Lighting (a heritage brand founded in 1885 as a maritime lighting supplier) enriching the brand with industrial-grade designs and traditional craftsmanship.
