Raw 17: Pair of Vintage Copper & Brass Teletetra GPO Extinguisher Table Lamps
A truly unique pair of table lamps created from two stunning vintage GPO teletetra extinguishers made from copper and brass. The extinguishers have attractive large brass rivets around the brass collars near the bases which add a distinctive character and a contemporary style.
The extinguishers have been polished and transformed by Utopia using aged brass fittings and retro-style, twisted mid-brown fabric cables and black Bakelite plugs. For stability the extinguishers have been mounted on a polished hardwood bases.
The lamps are in excellent used condition with only minor signs of wear commensurate with age - please study the photographs.
The lamps are shown here with our 40cm base diameter gold vellum fez shades, but the pair would look equally stylish with another design. Please see our shade collections.
Dimensions height 55cm, wooden base diameter 12cm
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.
