Raw 239: 1931 (NuSwift) Small Copper & Brass Fire Extinguisher Lamp

SOLD

This glorious solid copper and brass fire extinguisher was designed for use in cars by J. Blakeborough & Son Ltd, Brighouse in 1931. It is in fine used condition and now has been repurposed by Utopia into a statement table lamp. The front has an impressive brass plate with the makers details and instructions for use. Made of solid copper it has attractive brass detailing. 

 

The extinguisher has been transformed into a lamp with a specially turned and French polished hardwood base for stability, solid brass fittings including a brass screw lamp/bulb/LED holder, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted mid-brown cable, an inline switch and a black plug.  The cable exits discreetly from the back of the base.

The lamp is shown here with one of our gold vellum oval shades. Please note that the price is for the lamp only - all shades are sold separately. The lamp also works well just with a large LED instead of a shade.

Dimensions height 51cm

Raw Collection

The Raw Collection captures the essence of beautiful materials - celebrated in the raw. The main inspiration for this stylish contemporary collection is the four natural elements: fire, air, earth and water.  

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 heavy weight of this lamp it can only be collected from our gallery in Holt, North Norfolk. So please purchase it and let us know when you can collect it - thank you.
