Raw 375: Large 1940s US Oil Can (with amazing old paint patina) Lamp

An antique steel oil can with bags of character, has been transformed by Utopia into a statement lamp. The makers plate states Ellisco, which started as Geo. D. Ellis & Sons, Inc. Philadelphia in 1843.  The attractive paint patina has evolved naturally over many years of weathering. The surface has been waxed to retain its patina and avoid transferring rust. This can makes a great feature lamp for the floor or table.

The transformation includes: aged brass fittings: an E27 lamp holder with shade rings, retro-style twisted dark brown cable, an inline switch and a black plug. The base has been raised on 3 discreet wooden ball feet.

We think the lamp looks great with a filament LED or large coolie shade. Please note that the price does not include the LED.

Condition: excellent: sound and without any oil odour

Dimensions: height 63cm x base diameter 27cm

Raw Collection

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.
