Description from Design Within Reach

Originally known as Davey & Co., the company was established in 1885 and has roots dating back to the shipyards of 19th-century London. Its clients back then were the marine merchants operating out of London’s West India Docks, and Davey Lights graced the decks of many of history’s best-known vessels, including, it is said, the Titanic. Architects and designers have been long-time fans of Davey’s industrial aesthetic, like their Cargo Light (1920s), and satisfying the needs of this market helped the company continue to thrive. When manufacturing challenges brought the threat of closure, Peter Bowles stepped in and purchased the company. As part Original BTC, which Bowles founded, Davey Lighting now supplies marine, industrial and decorative lighting to residential and contract customers – making Davey available to the public (instead of only to the trade) for the first time. All components are handcrafted by small specialist suppliers according to centuries-old traditions. Bulbs (not included) 6 x 40W/GLS/E26. Made in England.

  • This light is supplied as standard with 1.5 meters of cable, chain and a ceiling hook plate.
  • Six-bulb cluster.

Materials: Cast aluminum, galvanized steel shade.
