Inspired by Davey Lighting’s long history producing fixtures for British maritime vessels, the Original BTC Ship's Hook Table Light seems to have been salvaged from an old ship yard. The weathered patina of the brass cage is nostalgic of lanterns found on early 20th century ships, emitting a comforting light through the frosted glass diffuser. Given a hand-held hook for easy portability, all metal components are forged by specialists in the UK, achieving an authentically British industrial style.
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.
