Vintage Garden Lights in Nickel Plated Solid Brass
Poor copies of original designs that are made to look old by the application of some coating or other can look contrived and cast doubt on the authenticity of the building. The vintage garden lights here are made using nickel plated solid brass and are a faithful representation of the originals, designed and crafted in exactly the same manner.
The period outdoor lights you find here are made in England by time served craftsmen and women of either cast or sheet brass and copper. They are then riveted and soldered by hand and finished in tough polished nickel plating. Any glass used is handmade to maintain the fittings authenticity. Lighting bought once to last a lifetime!
Nickel plating is a simple process but must be done correctly for the finish to give a lifetime of protection. Once your period lantern has been crafted, it must be completely clean and free of any grease or imperfections. This is achieved by degreasing and cleaning followed by heat-treating the fitting.
Once scrupulously clean, it is placed into an electrically charged tank containing a conductive acidic fluid. Nickel is then added to the solution, which is attracted to and bonds with the surface of the lantern. This results in a very tough outer nickel coating that is then highly polished. All of our nickel-plated outdoor lights have at least twice as much nickel as the minimum requirement British Standard.
