U Collection: Vintage Boosey & Hawkes Silver-Plated Tuba Lamp

SOLD

We've created a unique giant lamp from a wonderful very old, unplayable, silver-plated tuba  - Lafleur imported by Boosey & Hawkes, London. The bell is engraved with the makers name.

The instrument required extensive restoration before transforming it into a statement lamp with new chrome fittings including: E27 lamp/bulb holder, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted black cable, an inline switch and a black plug. We have fitted a universal joint to enable either a feature LED or shade to be kept upright by pivoting. The giant hardwood base has been specially hand turned and ebonised. The cable exits discreetly from the base.

Dimensions: height 109cm

Condition: excellent

The lamp is shown here with one of our grey coolie shades with a silver lining and a feature LED.  Please note that the price is for the lamp only.  

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 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.

We are unable to deliver this lamp due its weight and size, so please purchase it and collect it from our gallery in Holt.  It would be helpful if you can provide a date when you plan to collect the lamp, so we can have it ready for you - thank you.
