Round Dolly Light Switch 1 Gang Antique Satin Brass Black BaseProduct Code: PMKTDP601ASBB
The high quality dolly switch mechanism is made in the UK and is rated at 20A. It is available as 2 Way, Intermediate or Retractive. A 2 way switch is suitable for operating lights that only require switching from up to 2 places, the intermediate switch would be required if the light is to be operated from more than 2 places (for example in hallways and on landings). A retractive switch is used for momentary contact to operate items such as electric blinds and roof lights etc.
The mounting base (shown here in black) is available in black or white.
Antique satin brass is a living finish that is produced by hand. It is unlacquered so it will oxidise as it is exposed to the air and it will mellow and develop a rich patina with age and use. It can be polished back to achieve a lighter brighter finish or left to age further. This natural ageing combined with the hand crafted nature of the finish means that there may be differences in colour and detail. This all adds to the beauty, character and individuality of each product. Do bear this in mind if you are buying items over a period of time. We have an extensive range of items in this characterful finish including door furniture, window furniture, cabinet-ware and electrical hardware.

I have now bought sixteen of these dolly switches over the last few years with another six still to be purchased. They are certainly in keeping with the style of older houses. The construction has changed over the years with plastic replacing the china originally used in the manufacture. The price has also risen considerably. Like Bridget B. I too found “ … the pre-drilled screw holes on the wooden pattress were too far out from the centre, which meant that when the round Dolly switch cover was fitted, you could still see part of the screws at either side…” . This also applies to the square pattress. This is irritating in an otherwise well produced product and would not be difficult for Broughtons to remedy.

Beautifully crafted and the perfect mix of Victorian style and aesthetic with a modern approach. The finish on the brass is everything.

I replaced most of the old brass fronted dolly switches in my house a year or so ago on the basis they were not the safest in terms of design. I decided to do the more tricky ones recently. There has been a marked price hike, but I suppose that applies to most things.
One switch arrived with a broken mechanism, but a replacement was sent without any problem.
The switches look really good. They are well made and solid. They are pretty easy to fit. Broughtons are a decent company to deal with.

I bought the "Round Dolly Light Switch 1 Gang Antique Coppered Black Base" but requested a round wooden pattress instead of the advertised square one. I was pleased with the overall product but when it came to fitting it, I discovered that the pre-drilled screw holes on the wooden pattress were too far out from the centre, which meant that when the round Dolly switch cover was fitted, you could still see part of the screws at either side - these should not have been visible so I was a bit disappointed with the lack of attention to detail for such an expensive item.

We had a lot of antique switches of similar style in the house. They have been easy to replace with these quality and attractive reproduction dolly switches. Obviously the modern interior makes them safe and compliant. They arrived very quickly and the company seem very efficient.

I love these switches. I've been replacing the white plastic ones with these in my flat and they look amazing! Brings a real traditional quality to the rooms. And the service was excellent as well, received them really quickly after placing my order. I would highly recommend this product and using this company.

We have now replaced all our light switches with these products. They are excellent quality and very easy to self stain with wax which means we've matched them to our own colour scheme. We'd highly recommend these items.

The dome dolly switch we purchased is exactly what we wanted. It adds the perfect finishing touch to the summer house we've built in period style, using as much reclaimed materials as and where possible.

I was very pleased with this switch. The quality of its construction was extremely high and fitting was very easy. I intend to buy more switches soon so I can match up and give my home a period feel inside to match its construction.
