Raw 148: Antique Fluted French Metal Flask Table Lamp
An interesting old fluted flask from France has been transformed by Utopia into a great lamp.
The light has been ‘utopiaised’ into a lamp with aged-brass fittings, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted mid-brown cable, a switched bayonet lamp holder and a black plug. The flask has been waxed to preserve the patina and mounted on a wooden base for stability. The cable exits discreetly from the side.
The flask is in good condition with an attractive used patina, commensurate with age - please study the photographs.
The lamp is topped here with a 30cm drum shade from our Arboretum Collection.
Dimensions: height 39cm x base diameter 14cm
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.
