A great antique ship's masthead copper lamp has been transformed into a table lamp by Utopia. It has its original features including the specialist cylindrical ribbed glass which diffuses the light and brass details.
The light has been polished and transformed into a lamp with a historic nautical vibe. Solid brass electrical compliment the antique's original features fittings with around 2 metres of retro-style mid-brown twisted cable, an inline switch and black plug.
The antique's condition is surprisingly good considering its life at sea.
Dimensions: height 23cm x diameter 18cm
The Raw Collection captures the essence of materials and celebrates their elemental qualities. The main inspiration for the collection are 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 style 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 fragility of the original glass, this lamp can only be collected from our gallery in Holt, North Norfolk. Therefore, please purchase it and arrange collection. Thank you.
