Raw Collection: Victorian Copper Half Gallon Measuring Jug Table Lamp


We have transformed a fabulous half gallon, Victorian jug into a stunning lamp. Traditionally used for  measuring liquids, the solid copper vessel has its original lead weights and measures stamp inside the funnel - see photo. 

The lamp has been created with solid brass fittings including: E27 lamp holder with shade rings, around 2 metres of mid brown, twisted retro-style fabric cable which exits under the handle, an inline switch and a black plug.

The lamp is dressed here with one of our limited edition (100) Hydrangea Bouquet design empire shades but also looks great with a feature LED. Please note that the price does not include the shade or LED.

Condition: very good

Dimensions: height 31cm 

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 traditional plugs, whilst having the peace of mind that your light is safe, having been completely wired/rewired by experts using modern fittings.

Utopia charges a flat rate of £10 for all mainland UK deliveries. We no longer ship abroad. Postage will be refunded if you request collection in person from our gallery in Holt - please email us.
