    I recently bought this copper ceiling light which is very good quality and well presented.Wondered after lots of searching could it be by a maker called Benson .Any help greatly appreciated thank you. 3F815DA7-A083-4DE6-976E-ADEF897794C9.jpeg 03AF6E11-8D3F-4809-845B-127AD6DE150F.jpeg

    It is a pretty light and appears to be of high quality. Could possibly be a Benson. They did mark some of their pieces.

    It looks early to me based on the style of the bayonet bulb holders. Guessing turn of the century.

    Bayonet fittings are standard over here including Ireland.

    I should have been more specific, davey...the "bubble" on the fitting to hold a fitter ring vs being threaded. (at least it looks like a bubble type...)

    Thanks for your thoughts I have been looking for similar pieces the copper leaves are thick have a raised bit in middle and tip is pointed back on them all as part of design.Feels good quality I’m not going to mess with it but if the inside of the copper leaves were polished it would look something else.

    I found a couple that were at least similar from a conceptual standpoint (all Bensons):

    I’m looking for examples of a pattern book or something that might show the design or some literature .Thank you for the photos and your time.
