Electrification Testimonials

  • Victorian Wall Lights

    I had two antique wall lights wired. The job was done within a couple of days to my full satisfaction. Very friendly, impeccable service!

    Martin Geiger - London

  • Georgian Brass Hall Lantern

    Tucked away in an oft forgotten part of Georgian London, in an industrial building that owes so little to its architecturally-delightful neighbours, is one of the capital’s best kept secrets: a family business made up of craftsmen with skill, courtesy and care − the three magic ingredients. My family Georgian brass hall Lantern had been poorly maintained and under-cleaned for several generations. It was refurbished, re-wired, re-glazed and new "period" Candelabra hand-made − all in the period manner. Complete joy.

    Mr Hugo Peel - Isle of Wight

  • Maria Theresa Chandeliers

    Two inherited chandeliers were repaired, restored to their former glory and installed in my home by G P Cohn. The team was efficient, courteous and a pleasure to deal with. Their workshop is a treasure trove of beautiful objects, silently reassuring you that these are true craftsmen. I wish I had more chandeliers in need of these experts.
