A great little antique copper kettle, with an unusual half body that was probably used in a boat, makes an interesting table lamp.
The antique shows only minimal signs of wear including: a few minor dents and some scratches, however, we think that this character does not detract from its overall appeal and therefore it was worthy to be transformed into a great lamp.
It has been professionally polished to celebrate the wonderful copper and been transformed with solid brass fittings including: a stepped stem, a B22 lamp/bulb holder with shade rings and around 2 meters of twisted retro-style, mid-brown fabric cable and a black plug. The warmer has been mounted on 4 brass bun feet.
The lamp works great with just a feature LED or with a shade - we've dressed it with one of our limited edition (100) Wrens in Spring empire shades and a little cork drum. Please note that the price is for the lamp only.
Dimensions height 28cm x width 22cm x depth 11cm
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 style plugs, whilst having the peace of mind that your light is safe, having been completely wired/rewired by experts using modern fittings.
