Vintage Crabtree Brass / Porcelain British Toggle Light Switch With Earth.
For all collectors of period homewares or Architectural salvage, we have a genuine Vintage Crabtree Brass / Porcelain British Toggle Light Switch With Earth. It dates to about the 1930s/40s.
The face is brass and the back is ceramic.

It is in reasonable vintage condition. There are a few scuffs on the surface and the brass is discoloured but may benefit from a careful polish.
