A smart vintage steel oil can with a brass top has been waxed to maintain its attractive patina. We have repurposed the can into a lamp with a grungy style and new solid brass fittings including: a brass E27 lamp/bulb/LED holder with shade rings, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted grey cable, an inline switch and a black plug. The cable exits discreetly from the back near the base.
The lamp is shown here with a 20cm diameter globe LED and one of our Arboretum drum shades. Please note that the price is for the lamp only.

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. 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.
