A design inspired by the Anglo Saxon Period Style (410 to 1066)
In the Great Halls of the Middle Ages articifial illumination was provided by candles or torches. Candles were often impaled on iron spikes while torches were held in wrought iron cages or "cressets". Suspended candle beams, wall "prickets", candle staffs and candle standards were all common by the sixteenth century; and gradually the wrought iron workers and blacksmiths begain to produce table prickets, candle-sticks and hanging candle pendants that looked more like those we are familiar with today. Gradually there items came into common use in humble homesteads as well as in the great halls.
The Anglo-Saxons not only made use of iron and bronze but also silver, pewter and gold. Many examples of their metal work have been found by archeologists. Many objects were made for the Church. The Saxon Range is believed to be based on the Anglo Saxon style of metal work.
