Raw 15: Antique Copper & Brass Fire Hose Nozzle Table Lamp (20)
Raw 15: Antique/Vintage Copper & Brass Fire Hose Nozzle Table Lamp (20)
A stylish lamp created from a copper fire hose nozzle probably dating back to the 1930s. Made of solid copper and brass the nozzle is weighty and in an excellent used condition - the nozzle has been lovingly cared for by the fire fighters who used them with only a few scratches and minor dents - please study the photographs to assess its patina.
The nozzle has been ‘utopiaised’ into a table lamp with new brass fittings, a weighty brass base, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted mid-brown cable and a black plug. The hardwood base has been specially hand turned and French polished to compliment the warm tones of the metal. The cable exits discreetly from under the nozzle's base.
The lamp is shown here with our 20" empire ivory linen shade with black suede trim. Please visit our lampshade collections for more shade designs and prices.
Dimensions height 65cm, base diameter 19cm
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.
