A large antique oil lantern has been repurposed by Utopia into a unique statement lamp. The lantern has many original features including: an opening top, an oil reservoir, a carrying handle with wooden grip and a door chain. The 5 glass panels have been replaced.
The transformation includes: an E27 lamp holder, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted mid-brown cable, an inline switch and a black plug. The cable exits discreetly from the back. The metal has been waxed to maintain its patina.
Dimensions: height 43cm
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, 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. Therefore please purchase it and let us know when you plan to collect it - many thanks.
