The musical instrument is in an attractive used condition with lots character: little dents and scuffs, commensurate with its age. We only convert unplayable antique musical instruments that are fascinating pieces - too good to ignore.
Dimensions height 81cm, 40cm wide x hardwood base diameter 36cm
The instrument has been ‘utopiaised’ into a table lamp with new solid brass fittings, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted brown cable and a black plug. The hardwood base has been specially hand turned and French polished. The cable exits discreetly from the base.
The lamp is shown here with one of our large gold vellum coolie shades - it would look equally stylish with another design. Please note that the price is for the lamp only. Please visit our lampshade collections for more shade designs and prices.
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 plugs, whilst having the peace of mind that your light is safe, having been completely wired/rewired by experts using modern fittings.
