Bakelite Look Brown Light and GPO Switch
These authentic looking Bakelite Switches are the perfect match when used with the Bakelite GPO Bake 56B mounted on a cedar strained mounting block.

Unfortunately this light switch is no longer made of true Bakelite and is now manufactured in brown plastic still using quality Clipsal components.
The appearance is extremely close to the original Bakelite Switch produced by Clipsal in earlier years.
Clipsal Part Number No 363 Series.
Manufacturing of the true Bakelite Switches and Sockets ceased some years ago so unless stated "Genuine Bakelite" you will find all of these Switches and GPO'S in the market place are in fact made of plastic.

Lovely to find period bakelite replica switches. Dispatch and delivery is amazingly fast.
As Shaun said, prompt service, quick delivery, switches installed and working well. Bought 4 to replace older plastic ones with dodgy contacts. New ones have slightly longer toggles so had to move some older working ones for consistency
Good replacement for my old bakelite switches. Wish they had the small depression and red dot for the "on" position that the originals had but still a beautiful switch.
Prompt service. Good delivery. Switch installed and working well.
