Grand Antique Silver-Plated Samovar Table Lamp - Grace (177)
Grand Antique Silver -Plated Samovar Table Lamp - Grace (177)
We've created this grand table lamp from an elegant Victorian, silver-plated, urn samovar. We were particularly drawn to the very refined floral repousse work and engravings. The samovar has dainty silver-plated handles and a working tap. Traditionally, samovars were used to carry hot water ready for pouring into a teacup.
The antique is in great condition with some signs of plate wear - please see the pictures. The lamp has been created using: coordinating chrome-plated on brass fittings, around 2 metres of silver retro-style twisted fabric cable and a white plug. The cable exits discreetly from the base of the body.
The lamp is shown here with one of our limited edition (100) Hydrangea Bouquet fez shade - it would look equally good with another design. Please note that the price is for the lamp only - all shades are sold separately therefore visit our Lampshade Collections for different shade designs and prices.

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 plugs, whilst having the peace of mind that your light is safe, having been completely wired/rewired by experts using modern fittings.
