Besselink & Jones - staying true to our heritage with engineering excellence.
When it comes to the creation of fine lighting that will stand the test of time, there really is no substitute for experience and at Besselink & Jones we have a strong heritage of traditional British engineering skills. In fact, our well-established workshop has been expertly converting ceramics and other decorative treasures into unique lamps for more than fifty years.
We continue to take great pride in our conversion commissions but these days our much-expanded Surrey workshop also specialises in brass-turning, crafting in bronze, metal plating, wood-carving, hand-painting and colour-matching. Whichever technique we are using, we understand that there are no short-cuts when it comes to producing well-engineered lighting pieces of the highest quality. That’s why we adopt an individual approach with an uncompromising dedication to detail.
Every Besselink & Jones piece is hand-crafted and we still employ traditional methods which have elsewhere been all too often cast aside. Whether handling ceramics, wood, metal, crystal, glass or painted material, we treat renovation projects with the utmost sensitivity, so our work is in complete sympathy with the original.
Because of Besselink & Jones’ extensive international clientele, we also have considerable expertise in meeting both low energy and overseas wiring standards and we are a recognised UL listed workshop working to strict CE European and British Standards. So our clients can rest assured that, wherever in the world our pieces are bound for, not only will they look stunning, they can also be relied upon to function safely and effectively.
Bespoke commissions are also built in our workshops, where our teams of skilled craftsmen bring classic and contemporary designs to life. We can even customise our existing designs to clients’ specifications and our flexibility, together with our superior standards of service, has enabled us to develop long-standing relationships with many antique and interior design outlets in London and much further afield.
From restoration projects to new bespoke designs, from the cleaning of chandeliers to the conversion of antique pieces, from classic brass-turned pieces to modern creations in nickels, chromes or bronzes, from single lamps to entire complex lighting systems, the Besselink & Jones workshops have a wealth of experience and expertise and are proud to continue the tradition of outstanding British workmanship into the future.
