Elizabethan style light fittings that recreate the feel of Medieval lighting
. Today we can replicate the authentic look of Elizabethan lighting whilst still having the modern convenience of electric light. Dark metal ceiling lights and cartwheel style chandeliers
hand forged in wrought iron and suspended on metal chains from the ceiling are the ideal choice for lighting in larger rooms. Many of these would have been decorated in Elizabethan times with Gothic motifs, coats of arms, decorative scrolls and of course the Tudor rose. This look can easily be achieved today by selecting lights from Bespoke Lights Elizabethan Lighting Collection.
Metal wall sconces, torch lights and metal table lamps would have provided additional light in the reign of Elizabeth 1. Pottery lamps using animal and vegetable oils were introduced during this period. Dark metals, cast iron, wrought iron, dark bronze/brass and pewter were all used to make Elizabethan lights and these are still used today in the manufacture of reproduction Elizabethan light fittings.
Bespoke Lights have put together a ready made selection of light fittings that will help you achieve a look that is in keeping with the lighting of Elizabethan times. Many of these period lights are made in wrought iron or cast iron and we can offer a bespoke service to our customers so they can have unique wrought iron lights made to their own specification. We work closely with a small group of skilled British artisans who manufacture historical lighting using traditional methods. Simply contact us to set things in motion or alternatively select Elizabethan style lighting from the ready made selections available in our on-line shop.
