Bert Frank items are designed to oppose the throw away culture we live in today and are built to last at least as long as you will. During this time they will age and mature with you. The brass will soften and darken (unless you don't want it to and treat it to a little polish) and any knocks or scratches it may pick up over the years will add to its story. That's how we see them anyway, if you don't, you can always book them in for a recondition session.
At Bert Frank we take a huge amount of pride in designing and manufacturing our products in house in the UK to the highest possible standard. We don't cut corners and we don't sacrifice on quality to reduce costs and therefore we hope that our products will be a joy to own and use.
We also think that you should be able to have your Bert Frank light just as you would like it, so we offer custom colours and finishes and will even make your own designs for you. Please note that this does take time though, so if this is something that you are interested in let us know as early as possible.
