Four dolly switches on a Victorian style plate made from solid brass with a Hand Aged finish.

The Victorian plate is flat with simple clean styling that was a characteristic of the Victorian era when practicality and simplicity were the focus. It will suit many styles from traditional and period to contemporary. It can be fitted directly to the wall, but if preferred can be mounted onto a wooden pattress (see link below). This gives the benefit of extra space for the wiring (enabling it to be used with a 25mm back box), and can also cover up messy plastering that might otherwise be visible. Using a pattress with any item in this range also complements our period dome switches.

Hand Aged Brass is antiqued by hand as a bespoke service by our specialist Crafstman. Being hand aged, no two pieces are ever identical.  It is a living finish that is unlacquered so it will oxidise as it is exposed to the air and it will mellow even further and develop a richer patina with age and use. We can also make the finish darker or lighter, for example to complement other products you have.  Please contact us to discuss. Clean with a soft damp cloth followed by an application of a quality wax polish.

The high quality dolly switch mechanisms are made in the UK by Wandsworth and rated at 20 Amps. Each dolly switch 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). If you would like to swap any of them to double pole or retractive switches instead please contact us (a double pole switch can operate more than one circuit and a retractive switch is one where you "push to make").

A particular feature of our dolly switches is that the plate can be taken off easily (leaving the connections safely in place) for example for redecoration purposes or for cleaning of unlacquered plates so that you don't risk getting polish on your wall.

We highly recommend using a minimum 35mm backbox with this product to give a comfortable amount of space for the grid (the switch or socket mechanism) and wiring behind the plate.
