Raw 368: Antique English Copper Vessel Light with amazing verdigris
Raw 368: Antique Copper Vessel Light with amazing verdigris
A wonderful antique hand-hammered copper vessel, with a fabulous patina, has been repurposed as a unique light by Utopia. The pot has chunky rivets and a wide flange. The verdigris has naturally formed over many years of weathering.
The antique has been renovated and transformed into a statement light. It has been waxed to retain its natural verdigris. The transformation includes: aged brass fittings: ceiling rose, E27 lamp holder and chain, retro-style twisted black cable and a specially turned hardwood ceiling pattress.
We think the lamp looks great with a filament LED. Please note that the price does not include the LED.
Dimensions: height variable: maximum drop 74cm - minimum drop without chain 44cm. Vessel diameter 40cm.
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.
