Raw 310: Antique French Sprayer Lamp with amazing verdigris
Raw 310: Antique French Sprayer Lamp
A wonderful large antique back sprayer from France, with a fabulous patina, has been repurposed as a unique lamp by Utopia.
The light has been renovated and transformed into a statement lamp with a historic horticultural vibe. It has been lacquered to retain its natural verdigris. The base has been discreetly restored. The transformation includes: aged fittings to compliment the vessel, E27 lamp holder with shade rings, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted mid-brown cable, an inline switch and a black plug. The cable exits discreetly from the back.
We think the lamp looks great with a filament LED or a coordinating shade.
Condition: Good & sound now it has been restored.
Dimensions: height 57cm
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 large size and heavy weight of this lamp it can only be collected from our gallery in Holt, North Norfolk.
