British manufacturer Original BTC was founded in 1990 by Peter Bowles. Breaking convention, Bowles was the first designer to use bone china in lighting, paving the way for his pioneering investment in British manufacturing.

Original BTC has since grown and secured two further lighting brands, heritage marine lighting manufacturer Davey Lighting and LED lighting manufacturer Beadlight, in addition to the acquisition of six UK factories in Birmingham, Stoke-on-Trent and Oxford.

Quality, detail and an interesting mix of materials are integral to each brand’s designs. These are created by using the best quality raw materials to their utmost capability, paying great attention to the concept and form. From using centuries old techniques to the very latest technology, all lights are handmade and manufactured in the UK. The detailing of cotton braided cables, satin chromed bases and contrasting coloured shades make Original BTC, Davey Lighting and Beadlight’s products uniquely distinctive and popular in Europe and beyond.
