A charming table lamp full of character created from an antique milk churn. The churn attracted us as it has aged attractively plus with its bracing straps around the body, its original handles and clasp it makes a wonderful lamp with lots of grunge style. Made of metal the churn has been cleaned and waxed to bring out its attractive patina commensurate with its age - please study the photographs to assess its condition.
Wired to current British Standards with gunmetal fittings and retro-style, twisted mid-brown fabric cable and a black plug. The neck has been engineered with a universal device, so that the angle of the bulb holder can be changed to align upright. The flex exits discreetly near the base of the churn.
The lamp is shown here with one of our large oval shades in brown linen and will an ivory linen fez. Please visit our lampshade collections for more shade designs and prices.
Dimensions height 46.5cm, diameter 18cm
The Raw Collection captures an elemental grandeur for interiors wherein the essence of beautiful materials is celebrated in the raw. The main inspiration for this stylish contemporary collection is the four natural elements: fire, air, earth and water. Through harnessing the juxtaposed energies of: metal, wood and stone a natural dynamic in design evolves.
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.
Utopia charges a flat rate of £10 for all deliveries.
