About the Manufacturer
Genuine craftsmanship, highest material quality and timeless design for the modern living room – that is what the name Original BTC stands for. Three different materials, which are processed in their own factories in England, characterize the luminaires of this manufacturer: lamp reflectors in spun aluminium, prismatic holophane glass shades (which are traditionally spread in Anglo-Saxon space) and the recent trademark of delicate porcelain called "Bone China" – a high-quality porcelain which is given its special strength and light colour by the addition of bone ash. The material is opaque white, but becomes translucent when lit and is considered to be the best and noblest kind of porcelain.
In order to be able to produce these porcelain pieces in the good old quality, the
company founder, Peter Bowles, took over a manufacturing facility in Stoke-on-
Trent, which was threatened of closure. Bowles, who originates from a
traditional family of merchants and designers, had already established a factory
for cookware in Sheffield and sold more than a million products before
concentrating on the BTC lamps in 1990. Original BTC
are now found in the best addresses worldwide.
