A charming and quirky table lamp created from a vintage brass car horn. Made of solid brass the horn is in an attractive used condition - please study the photographs to assess its patina. We're wondering what type of vintage car it enhanced?
Wired to current British Standards with brass fittings and retro-style, twisted mid-brown fabric cable and a black plug. The horn has been attractively fixed, using tiny brass screws, to a specially turned hardwood base. This has been polished to bring out the warm colour in the wood, which also compliments the metal. The neck has been engineered with a pivoting device, so that the angle of the bulb holder can be changed to align upright. The flex exits discreetly from the wooden base.
The lamp can be used with or without a shade. It is shown here with an LED element bulb and one of our empire parchment shades (special order). Please visit our lampshade collections for more shade designs and prices.
(Please note that we do not sell light bulbs.)
Dimensions height 32cm, base diameter 12.5cm
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.
