A 1 Gang (single switch) what we call: Star dome Switch finished in our Antique Satin Brass. The dome was modelled on a line drawing from a 1910 catalogue that we were lucky enough to have been given. The result is a very unusual and characterful switch.

The high quality dolly switch mechanism is made in the UK and is rated at 20A. It is available as 2 Way or Intermediate. A 2 way switch is suitable for lights that only require switching from up to 2 places, whereas 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).

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.<\br>We have an extensive range of items in this characterful finish including door furniture, window furniture, cabinet-ware and electrical hardware.

Width: 90mm
Height: 90mm

Pros and cons, 1st Sep 2020

Reviewer: Paula F

Purchased 2 single switches.
Pros - This switch will definitely add the final wow touch to a room.
Cons - The switch element is impossible to clip into the black ring. Followed the instructions to the letter. Even after contacting customer services they could not offer any fix. Apparently I am the only customer to have had an issue. I had to resolve to snapping off the clip.
Also the fixing hole in the wooden base plate showed at the edge of the black ring. I rotated the wooden base plate until it was less visible. The hole in the wooden base needs to be a few mm smaller. This was the same on both switches.

It is a shame that a couple of manufacturing faults have spoilt what could be a quality product.

Good quality reproduction, 13th Jul 2020

Reviewer: Oliver K

The look and feel is great. Brass dome great quality, back plate in untreated wood is handy as you can get you own spec (slightly distressed in my case). Bought one double + a few singles, and will buy again as work is progressing.
Only downsides:
- switch element is tricky to clip into plastic ring / plate.
- switch element could be better quality (feels quite light when operating the switch), but I will still purchase again.
Excellent service and communication from Broughtons’s team.
