Raw 369: Antique Copper Large Carriage Warmer Lamp

SOLD

Carriage warmers were traditionally used in open top carriages and early cars to warm the feet or hands of the occupants in the winter. The brass cap on the front was originally the opening to place hot water inside. Often wrapped in carpet as insulation, these devices are hard to find in excellent condition. This large rectangular example is very fine and has been transformed into an elegant table lamp. 

The  lamp has been created using brass fittings including: a brass screw E27 lamp/bulb/LED holder, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted mid-brown cable, an inline switch and a black plug.  The base was specially made from American black walnut. The cable exits discreetly from the back near the base.

The lamp is shown here with one of our large linen rectangular shades plus a feature LED.  Please note that the price is for the lamp only.

Condition: excellent condition

Dimensions height 64cm x base 30.5cm

Raw Collection

The Raw Collection captures the essence of beautiful materials - celebrated in the raw. The main inspiration for this stylish contemporary collection is 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. 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.
