We are lighting specialists, based in Ross-on-Wye, and we love making lighting unique.
Located in one of the original brewery buildings in the pretty market town of Ross On Wye, Herefordshire, our on-site workshop gives us the opportunity to complement our antique & contemporary lighting with a bespoke lighting design service.
We also restore antique lighting and light fixtures for individual customers, local authorities & heritage associations.
Quality Products, Handmade in the UK
We design, make, sell and restore high quality lighting for discerning customers looking for a quality, unique product for their home or commercial premises. We pride ourselves on the quality of our antique lighting restoration and build quality which is second to none and our reputation is of the utmost importance to us. We strive to maintain and promote integrity within our industry and are proud to be members of the Lighting Industry Association.
Sustainable & Ethical
Fritz Fryer Lighting originally dealt only in antique lighting so, with the antiques industry being well ahead of its time in discovering the value of upcycling and recycling, we strive to reduce our environment impact wherever possible.
The beauty of our original antique light fittings is that they were made to last, from high quality materials and with a high standard of craftsmanship. In addition, recent developments in low energy light bulbs mean we can now claim a low carbon footprint throughout the life of our product.
We seek to use British suppliers wherever possible so our products are not flown in from around the world and our fittings are made to last from quality materials.
In addition, we only purchase recyclable packaging wherever possible. Our void fill chips are fully biodegradable. If your order arrives with some non-biodegradable packaging it will be because we recycle all packaging materials which arrive from our suppliers wherever possible and, sadly, they don't all use biodegradable products (especially chips). We feel it is better to reuse them multiple times rather than send them to landfill. If you wish to return your packaging to us, we will happily receive and reuse it for you.
Service - Tailor Made to suit you (just like our products)
We are proud to offer a personal and thorough service to all our customers. We take the time to consider every aspect of your purchase, and encourage you to phone us to discuss your particular lighting issues. We will offer advice based on what will work for you in your particular setting. Amongst our team we have a huge amount of lighting experience and someone here will know the answer to your question or, if not, find out for you.
The business was opened in 1982 by Four Pennies band member Fritz Fryer and his partner Joan Graham. Fritz grew the business and gained a formidable reputation for high quality antique lighting. Fritz and Joan retired in 2004, when the business was bought by Karen and Simon. It has continued to go from strength to strength and our collection is now housed in one of the original (5000sqft) Georgian brewery buildings in Ross On Wye.
We are in the beautiful location of Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire at the end of the M50 and on the Gloucestershire border, with great links to the North, South, Midlands and Wales. We feel privileged to be able to work and live in the beautiful county of Herefordshire. We incorporate a Herefordshire theme into our photography, with many of our photos involving stunning antique chandeliers, and other antique light fittings, photographed in Herefordshire barns. In addition our own, hand made, contemporary collection is all named after Herefordshire towns and villages. With such a beautiful location on offer, the best way to see our lighting collection is to pay us, and Herefordshire, a visit.
We have one of the largest collections of antique lighting in the country and a warehouse full of unrestored stock which hasn’t yet made it to the website. If you want to see our extensive collection why not pay us a visit?
