House of Troy was founded in 1947, by Norm Bailey in Quebec, Canada. Norm was a metal worker who designed and manufactured the Classic Traditional picture light, which is still the benchmark for picture lights today.
Today House of Troy is known as a leading manufacturer and importer of portable task lighting. In addition to our popular picture lights we manufacture and distribute floor lamps, desk lamps, specialty piano lamps, and wall swing lamps that are both decorative and functional. Styles range from traditional to transitional to contemporary. Our metal finishing capabilities include powder coating, plating, oxidizing and painting. We have developed most of our products with either incandescent or LED light sources.
65% of our products are made in our Hyde Park, Vermont facility, for those, customization is an option. Picture light customization is the most frequent. For instance, we modify picture light arms to mount on book cases and shelves with special hardware, or modify the stem length to adjust the projection from the wall, or change a cord length from 8’ to 18’. For each, we charge a modest up-charge to manufacture to your customer’s specifications.
All our products are designed with multiple adjustment points so that the user can control the light on the work surface and keep glare to a minimum. We also offer many products with lighting controls, such as dimmers, three-way, or even six-way switching for optimum light output.

House of Troy
George Scatchard set up his first pottery in Northern Vermont in the early 60’s and has been working with clay ever since. This artisan potter taught ceramics at the University of Vermont while continuing to create pottery in his own rural studio. He specialized in making lamps.
The proprietary mix of clay and custom glazes that George has developed through years of experimentation, in combination with the high fire reduction process, create a highly durable and beautiful stoneware product.
House of Troy purchased G. Scatchard in the spring of 2013. Today our artisans, trained by George, continue to slip cast the lamps in molds based on George’s original hand thrown pieces. All lamps are trimmed and glazed by hand on a potter’s wheel, and then kiln fired at 2300° for 24 hours. Each piece is then signed “G. Scatchard, Made in Vermont”, by the artist.
