This antique brass lantern once adorned a vintage car or coach. Originally used with a candle - it has now been transformed by Utopia into a unique lamp with a specially turned and ebonised hardwood base, solid brass fittings including: an E27 lamp/bulb holder, an inline switch, around 2 meters of black twisted, retro-style fabric cable and a black plug. The attractive patina on the brass has been waxed.
The lamp includes an LED filament light.
Dimensions height 55cm
Condition: The lantern is in excellent used condition with only minor signs of wear and attractive verdigris.
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, 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.
