A vintage milk churn has been transformed by Utopia into a statement lamp. The vessel has an attractive naturally aged, peeling paint patina which has been waxed to be retained. This milk churn makes a great feature lamp for the floor or table.
The transformation includes: aged brass fittings: an E27 lamp holder with shade rings, stem, retro-style twisted dark brown cable, an inline switch and a black plug.
We think the lamp looks great with a filament LED or large shade. Please note that the price does not include the LED or shade.
Condition: very good
Dimensions: height 64cm
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.
