Raw 127: Antique Railway Lantern Table Lamp


A wonderful old railway lantern from 1930/40s, originally used by Southern Railways, has been renovated and transformed by Utopia into a stylish table lamp with a grungy, industrial vibe.

It's distinctive character makes this lamp a great focal point in any room particularly as it has interest on all 4 sides. The lamp has a wonderful array of details including: its original ceramic wick holder, opening front door, brass handles and air controller, copper top, a circular viewing window, brass makers plate and a handle. The antique is in excellent condition - as pictured.

The old lantern has been created using aged brass fittings, including 4 brass ball feet and around 2 metres of retro-style, twisted black fabric cable and a black plug.

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.

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.
