U Collection: Antique Brass Car Horn Table Lamp (10)
Antique Brass Car Horn Table Lamp (10)
A stylish table lamp created from a wonderful old car horn from a vintage car. The horn has a double loop making it particularly collectable and unusual. Made of solid brass, the horn is in lovely used condition - please study the photographs to assess its patina. We're wondering what type of vintage car it adorned?
Wired to current British Standards with brass fittings and retro-style, twisted mid-brown fabric cable and a black plug. The lamp has an Edison/screw E27 lamp holder and an inline switch with shade rings. We've added a universal joint so that the LED or shade can be kept vertical. The horn has been attractively fixed to a specially turned black walnut base which has been French polished to bring out the deep colour in the wood and to compliment the metal. The flex exits discreetly from the hardwood base.
Please note that the price does not include the LED.
Dimensions height 41cm x base diameter 17cm
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 plugs, whilst having the peace of mind that your light is safe, having been completely wired/rewired by experts using modern fittings.
