Raw 156: Antique Verdigris Drum Light with Miniature Antique Glass Bottle Fringe

SOLD

A striking light has been created by Utopia from a wonderful French drum chandelier ring with amazing natural verdigris. (Verdigris is a bright turquoise and green encrustation or patina formed on copper or brass by atmospheric oxidation). Dressed with a fringe of little antique medicine and ointment bottles, hung on copper wire, this light is a true one-off and will make a great talking point in any room. The bottles can be carefully filled with water and sprigs of flora or greenery added - as illustrated in our little video.

We were particularly attracted to the variance in the natural patina of the brass forming swathes of blue, green and turquoise.

 

The light has aged-brass fittings including: an edison/screw lamp/bulb holder, gothic chain and dark brown twisted fabric cable. The wooden pattress is large and French polished with an ornate antique French metal ceiling rose with a natural verdigris to compliment the drum. Copper studs adorn the drum as part of the restoration process.

Dimensions drum diameter 45cm x height variable - we have included a significantly long cable and chain to allow for flexibility.

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.

Utopia charges a flat rate of £10 for all deliveries in the UK mainland. If purchasing from outside the UK please contact us for a shipping quote.
