A wonderful antique French lantern has been fully restored and transformed by Utopia into a stylish table lamp. This lantern would have originally been used with a candle.
It's distinctive character makes this lamp a great focal point in any room. The lamp has a wonderful array of original details including: a hinged door, dainty metal grills in front of the glass panes, a looped hanging/carrying handle and a number 3 embossed on each top facet.
The antique is in great condition - as pictured.
The old lantern has been created using gunmetal electrical fittings and retro-style, twisted black fabric cable with an inline switch and a black plug.
Dimensions height 36cm x width 13cm
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.
