Rare John Round & Son (1863-1874) Antique Silver-Plated Quilted Teapot Table Lamp - Grace 192
A rare find - a highly unusual and splendid antique silver-plated teapot, with fine quilted repousse work, has been transformed into a unique table lamp. The teapot was made by John Round & Son who created silverware between 1863 -1874.
This wonderful antique has obviously been well loved as it has a few discreet solder repairs, but overall is in lovely condition - we don't normally source teapots with solder repairs but these were so discreet and the antique so special, that we decided it was worthy of transformation. The lamp has coordinating chrome fittings, around 2 metres of silver retro-style twisted fabric cable and a white plug. The cable exits discreetly from under the handle.
The lamp is shown here with one of our Magnolia Damask oval drum shades from the Romantic Botanicals Collection - the lamp 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.
Lamp dimensions height 30cm x width 25cm x depth 14cm
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.
