U Collection: Antique Copper & Brass 1930s Picnic Kettle Lamp

A rare find: a small antique, solid copper and brass picnic kettle made by G. W. S. & S. Company probably in the 1930s. The kettle has been transformed by Utopia into a unique table lamp. Unusually, the kettle has its original woven cane wrapping on the pivoting, brass handle and lid chain, intact. The little chain from the spout lid has been reattached to the neck of the lamp through an 's' ring. 

The old kettle is in great condition with only limited signs of wear - please study the photos.

The lamp is shown here with one of our copper solaris drum shades  - it would look equally good with a 125mm LED filament.

Dimensions height 26cm, diameter 14cm

The table lamp has aged brass fittings including: switched bayonet lamp (bulb) holder, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted mid-brown cable and a black plug. The cable exits discreetly from the back.

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.

Utopia charges a flat rate of £10 for all deliveries.
