Knotwork is the Celtic style that‘s the most distinctive. One of the clever tricks of the scribes of old was to create a knot to fit a particular space, then double the strands to add more intricacy when examined closely while still showing an attractive, clear pattern when viewed from farther away.

For this switchplate, an original knotwork pattern was created to fit its size and shape, and the strands were doubled to make a piece interesting both at a distance and up close.The strands run parallel to each other, and interweave when they cross another segment. The corners of the outermost strand are broadened into points, with a concave triangle design to break up the dark areas. A second border of knotwork surrounds the inner.

These switchplates are hardwood (usually maple or ash, depending on what our supplier provides) with a metal back, and fit standard single wall switches. The design is precision engraved into the wood and finished with two hand-rubbed coats of wax. The first coat is colored to give a medium oak tone to the wood and to darken the knotwork lines, while the top coat is a hard wax designed for floors and furniture. Each switchplate is hand-polished to a soft shine. Screws included. All new materials. Dimensions: 3 3/8 inches (8.7 cm.) wide, and 5 5/8 inches (14.3 cm.) high.
Since wood is a natural material, there will be some variation in color and grain from piece to piece.

The photograph is of the actual switchplate; each switchplate has its own grain and appearance.
