Raw 26: Vintage Brass Agricultural Syringe Table Lamp
Raw 26: Vintage Brass Table Lamp
An elegant lamp created from a striking brass agricultural syringe. The artefact has the makers stamp of Arnold & Sons, 31 West Smithfield, London, on the front - please see the image. Made of solid brass the syringe is weighty and in an attractive used condition - please study the photographs to assess its patina.
The syringe has been ‘utopiaised’ into a table lamp with new brass fittings, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted mid-brown cable and a black plug. The hardwood base has been specially hand turned and French polished to compliment the warm tones of the metal. The cable exits discreetly from the base.
The lamp is shown here with our drum shades in the Morning Flight design, which picks up the brass tones. Please visit our lampshade collections for more shade designs and prices.
Dimensions height 78cm, base diameter 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.
Utopia charges a flat rate of £10 for all deliveries.
