Raw 47: Giant Antique/Vintage Copper & Brass Fire Hose Nozzle Table Lamp (22)
Raw 47: Giant Antique/Vintage Copper & Brass Fire Hose Nozzle Table Lamp (22) REDUCED
A giant elegant lamp has been created by Utopia from a rare, extra long copper and brass fire hose nozzle probably dating back to the 1930s/40s. The nozzle has the makers mark of the famous Morris & Sons Ltd, Salford. Made of solid copper and brass this exceptional nozzle is weighty and in an attractive used condition with signs of use commensurate with its age and role. Please study the photographs to assess its condition.
The nozzle has been ‘utopiaised’ into a table lamp with new brass fittings, a weighty brass base, a universal joint to maintain verticality of the shade, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted mid-brown cable and a black plug. The hardwood base has been specially hand turned and French polished to compliment the warm tones of the metal. The cable exits discreetly from the nozzle's base.
The lamp is shown here with our extra-large 61cm diameter shallow drum shade in ivory linen with black faux suede trim and a giant coolie shade - both are available from the gallery or as a special order online. Please note that the price is for the lamp only - all shades are sold separately, therefore visit our Lampshade Collections for alternative shade designs and prices.
Dimensions height 96cm, base diameter 20cm
Lamp reduced from £380 to £330
The Raw Collection captures an elemental grandeur for interiors wherein the essence of beautiful materials is celebrated in the raw. The main inspiration for this stylish contemporary collection is the four natural elements: fire, air, earth and water. Through harnessing the juxtaposed energies of: metal, wood and stone a natural dynamic in design evolves.
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 and unique 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 Bakelite plugs, whilst having the peace of mind that your light is safe, having been completely wired/rewired by experts using modern fittings.
Please note that due to the large size and heavy weight of this lamp it can only be collected from our gallery in North Norfolk.
