U Collection: Antique Solid Brass Giant Hunting Horn Lamp
Antique Solid Brass Giant Hunting Horn Lamp
A giant table lamp created from an antique, solid brass hunting horn. The large coils balanced with the wide trumpet, made this as irresistible find to transform. The horn is in great condition with only very minor marks and scratches on it.
Wired to current British Standards with brass fittings and retro-style, twisted mid-brown fabric cable and a black plug. The lamp has an edison/screw lamp holder and an inline switch. The horn has been attractively fixed, using tiny brass screws, to a specially turned English elm base. The base has been French polished to bring out the warm colour in the wood - which compliments the metal. The photograph of the cable reflects the true colour of the elm base best. The cable exits discreetly from the side of the horn near the base.
The lamp has been designed to be used with an LED filament. Please note that the price does not include the LED.
Dimensions height 62cm x width 54cm. Base diameter 33cm
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. The inspired selection of the original object and the process it goes through to make it covetable and unique is what makes our products special – every lamp is a one-off.
Peace of Mind Enjoy the aesthetics of top quality heritage styling: traditional twisted fabric cable, aged metal fittings, retro-style chains and historical Bakelite plugs, whilst having the peace of mind that your light is safe, having been completely wired/rewired by experts using modern fittings.
Please note that due to the large size and heavy weight of this light we are unable to deliver it - therefore it can only be collected from our gallery in North Norfolk.
