Raw 100: Giant Vintage Copper Lantern with Verdigris

We discovered this wonderful antique/vintage copper lantern and were immediately attracted to its aged patina of natural and deliberate verdigris. We have restored and rewired it into a unique light that would look great in a vestibule. The lantern has an opening glass door with a simple brass closure.

Verdigris is a turquoise and green encrustation or patina formed on copper or brass by atmospheric oxidation.

The lantern has been transformed using aged brass fittings including: a screw lamp holder with cord grip, a large domed ceiling rose with 4 hooks and a cord grip, 4 welded oval chains and mid-brown retro-style cable. 

This light looks great with an LED filament. The filament shown is not included in the price.

Dimensions chain & cable drop 80cm (could be shortened) lantern height 85cm x width/depth 43cm. The light weighs around 10kg so a secure fixture in a ceiling joist is important.

Raw Collection

The Raw Collection captures an elemental grandeur for interiors wherein the essence of beautiful materials is celebrated in the raw. The main inspiration for this stylish contemporary collection is the four natural elements: fire, air, earth and water.  Through harnessing the juxtaposed energies of: metal, wood and stone a natural dynamic in design evolves.

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.

Please note that due to the large size and heavy weight of this lamp it can only be collected from our gallery in North Norfolk.
