The British Museum is located in London and its 8 million strong collection is one of the largest and most comprehensive in the world. The works are dedicated to human history & culture and originate from all continents. The museum was established in 1753 with the passing of Sir Hans Sloane who had gathered over 71,000 precious objects in his lifetime. In accordance with his wishes, the collection was given to King George II for the nation in return for £20,000 to his heirs. The museum finally opened to the public in 1759, taking around 5000 visitors in the first year, a figure which now regularly reaches 6 million on an annual basis.
We created a bespoke ten light pendant in an Old English bronze finish and cross cut glass shades. To match, we also supplied both three armed and single armed wall brackets, as well as flush ceiling fixtures. All the lights were wired to take mains compact fluorescent lamps.
