Raw 115: Vintage Steel & Copper Railway Table Lamp
Raw 115: Antique Steel & Copper Railway Table Lamp
A great old steel and copper railway lamp has been transformed by Utopia into a unique table lamp with a grungy, industrial vibe. The antique oil lamp used on the railways was made by Issac Sherwood & Son Ltd, of 44-50 Granville Street, Birmingham from 1904.
It's distinctive character and 'warehouse' style makes this lamp a great focal point in any room. The lamp has a wonderful array of details including: the company's brass stamp on the wick winder, original ceramic wick housing, brass handle and door closure and copper disc base.
The old lamp has been transformed by Utopia using gunmetal fittings and retro-style, twisted black fabric cable and a black plug. It is in good used condition with only general signs of wear commensurate with its age - please study the photographs.
The lamp is shown here with an LED 125mm filament. the lamp includes a shade ring so that it could also be dressed with a shade. Please note that the price is for the lamp only.

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.
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.
