F & C Osler Recreation

F & C Osler Recreation

A challenging task was presented in 2012 with the request to manufacture a pair of chandeliers and matching wall lights with only a photograph to go on. The picture was of an early 1900’s F & C Osler chandelier Wilkinson’s restored in the 1990’s which featured both intricate metalwork as well as hand cut lead crystal in numerous shapes.

The reproductions were created by altering the original design to meet the customers specifications, however with no existing physical patterns to take castings from, Mr Wilkinson had to hand draw each individual piece for new moulds to be created, ensuring that they were kept to scale and maintained the original pattern.
