Whitworth Art Gallery
The supply and renovation of antique lights for the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester is one of our most prestigious projects to date. The copper arts and crafts chandeliers were rewired and redressed using elegant pink opalescent acorn shades to emulate what would have originally hung from the lights. The two large and two small chandeliers hang in the North and South Towers.
In addition we supplied the large spherical antique opaline shades which drop dramatically at the base of the stairwells. Dating from circa 1940s they have a timeless appeal and lead the eye subtly from the stairwell through to the large and luminous gallery beyond.
