A charming antique teapot has been transformed by Utopia into a stylish table lamp. The teapot is of oval drum form with a wide fluted body decorated with engraved floral swags. The handle has a ceramic insulator whilst the spout is fluted. The teapot was made by Francis Edward Spiller, 71 Newington on Causeway, Spitalfields, London.
The lamp has been created using chrome fittings, around 2 metres of silver retro-style twisted fabric cable and a white plug. The cable exits discreetly from under the handle.
The lamp is dressed here with 2 of our limited edition (100) empire shape shades: Hydrangea Bouquet and English Garden design. Please note that the price is for the lamp only - all shades are sold separately therefore visit our Exclusive Designer Lampshade Collections for different shade designs and prices.
Lamp dimensions height 24.5cm x width 25cm
Utopia's Unexpected Lights
All Utopia's lights are unique and are handmade in our studios in North Norfolk from interesting antiques and finds. They each tell a narrative and enjoy close inspection to reveal strong craftsmanship and hidden layers of interest and wonder.
Creating our distinctive lights – the narrative behind the story Reclaimed elegance – the artefacts that Utopia sources for its lights are deliciously old, usually antique, sometimes vintage, and this ‘narrative’ is reflected in their character, patina and form – Utopia celebrates the knocks, chips, and scratches of their stories.
Peace of Mind Enjoy the aesthetics of top quality heritage styling: traditional twisted fabric cable, aged metal fittings, retro-style chains and plugs, whilst having the peace of mind that your light is safe, having been completely wired/rewired by experts using modern fittings.
