Raw 393 : Pair of 1940s Solid Copper & Brass Fire Hose Nozzle Table Lamps
Raw 393: Pair of 1940/50s Solid Copper & Brass Fire Hose Nozzle Table Lamps
An elegant pair of lamps created by Utopia from 2 fire hose nozzles probably dating back to the 1940/50s. Made of solid copper and brass the nozzles are weighty and in an attractive condition with surprisingly few signs of wear considering their role and purpose. Please study the photographs to assess their condition.
The nozzles have been transformed with new solid brass fittings, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted mid-brown cable for each and black plugs. The deep hardwood bases have been specially hand turned and French polished. The cables exit discreetly from the bases.
The lamps are shown here with our limited edition (100) Fanfare drum shades. Please note that the price is for the lamps only - all shades are sold separately.

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.
