Grand Antique Silver-Plated Samovar Table Lamp - Grace 270


Grand Antique Silver-Plated Samovar Table Lamp - Grace 270


A fine example of an elegant Victorian silver-plated, trophy-shaped samovar in neoclassical style. We were particularly drawn to the refined floral repousse work and engravings. Standing on 4 ball feet, the samovar has ornate dolphin handles and a brass tap. Traditionally, samovars were used to carry hot water to the table for pouring into a teacup. 

The antique is in good condition with some signs of wear - please see the pictures. We decided not to polish the silver as it has an attractive grey patina. The lamp has been created using: coordinating fittings, E27 screw lamp holder, a universal joint to maintain verticality of the shade, around 2 metres of black retro-style twisted fabric cable, an inline switch and a black plug. The cable exits discreetly from the base of the body.

The lamp is shown here with one of our linen rectangular shades - it would look equally good with another design. Please note that the price is for the lamp only.

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 so 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.

Due to the size of this lamp we are unable to deliver it by post. Please purchase the light and kindly let us know when you will be collecting it from our gallery in Holt, Norfolk - thank you.
