Literati Collection: Art Deco Standish Table Lamp (4)


A wonderful statement table lamp created from an oak standish made around the 1930s.

The inkwell stand has been restored and is now in excellent condition with both the original Prettywell glass inkwells intact without chips or cracks, two Bakelite lids and original feet. The cable exits discreetly from under the base (see photograph). The lamp has been 'utopiaised' with brass fittings, mid brown retro-style cable and a Bakelite plug. The well recesses have been restored with new black felt.

The lamp is shown here with our Literati Collection: Open Book oval shade - it would look equally good with another design. 

Dimensions Height including shade 48cm. Width of standish 26cm x 18cm depth

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.
