Grace 209 is a wonderful antique solid copper mixing bowl, by Dehilliers of Paris, transformed into a statement pendant light by Utopia. The bowl was hand hammered into shape with a splendid rolled rim. The makers stamp is by the brass handle detail - as pictured. The inside is bright and shiny. This great piece makes a lovely warm light with its reflective qualities. Grace 208 is almost a matching antique and together they could make a stunning pair of lights.
The antique is in great condition with only a few minor signs of wear.
The light has been created using a domed copper ceiling rose with a brass hook to hold the chain, mounted on a French polished hardwood pattress, a brass edison/screw bulb/lamp holder with a hook and around 65cm of mid brown retro-style twisted fabric cable and solid-brass chain.
Dimensions Height variable - maximum drop 97cm. Bowl 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/light 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.
