Stunning vintage copper and brass ship's masthead light has been renovated and transformed by Utopia into a great giant lamp with a nautical vibe. The masthead has its original curved glass and detailing.
The light is in very good condition with an attractive used patina, commensurate with age and use, however, as part of its story it does have a dent on the lower front rim - please study the photographs.
The light has been ‘utopiaised’ into a lamp with new brass fittings to match the brass details of the original, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted mid-brown cable, an inline switch and black plug. The cable exits discreetly from the back.
Dimensions including brass handle: height 58cm, width 35cm x depth 32cm
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.
Due to the significant size and weight of this lamp, we ask that you collect it from our gallery as shipping would be precarious and prohibitively expensive
