Raw 92: Vintage French Dehail & Grenier Steel Railway Lantern Table Lamp
Raw 92: Vintage Steel Railway Lantern Table Lamp
A vintage steel railway lamp made by Dehail & Grenier, Paris, has been transformed by Utopia into a unique table lamp with a grungy, industrial vibe. It's distinctive character and 'warehouse' style make it a great focal point in any room. The lamp has a wealth of interesting detailing including: wonderful door closure at the front, the original glass on the door with an oval mask, a steel makers plate on the side and a removable red glass panel on the back.
The old lantern has been transformed by Utopia using gunmetal fittings and retro-style, twisted black fabric cable, an inline switch and a black plug. It is in a well-used condition with general signs of wear commensurate with its age - please study the photographs. The distressed paint and metal has been buffed and waxed to maintain the attractive patina whilst negating the transfer of stains from the metal.
The lamp is shown here with an LED filament. Please note that the price is for the lamp only.
Dimensions height 38cm x width 13cm x depth 16cm
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.
