A superb antique metal lantern from the Victorian era has been restored and transformed by Utopia into a stylish table lamp with great character.
It's distinctive looks are formed by a wonderful array of original details including: 3 bevelled glass windows, a hinged side door and a hanging/carrying handle. The antique is in excellent condition.
The old lantern has been transformed using gunmetal fittings and retro-style, twisted black fabric cable with an inline switch and a black plug. The original oil reservoir has been utilised to hold the screw bulb/lamp holder.
Dimensions height 40cm including handle x depth 12.5cm x width 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.
Please note that due to the original bevelled glass content of this lamp it can only be collected from our gallery in North Norfolk.
