Raw 11: Antique Copper Carriage Warmer Table Lamp (5)

SOLD

A stunning, antique copper carriage warmer with brass top and two side carrying handles from early 1900s. This wonderful vessel has now been transformed by Utopia into a unique table lamp. The antique is stamped by the maker on one side with A.J. Bagguley, Hanley.

The warmer would have originally been used to heat the seat or feet of passengers whilst travelling in an open top carriage or vehicle. It  has been restored and mounted on four brass ball feet. The narrow shape of the lamp makes it ideal for when a significant lamp is required in a room, but depth is an issue.

Wired to current British Standards with brass fittings and retro-style, twisted mid-brown fabric cable and a black Bakelite plug.

The lamp is shown with one of our large, oval, mid-brown linen shades, with black suedette trim, to enhance the shade's profile. The lamp would look equally good with another Utopia shade.

The antique is in excellent condition with only a very light patina of wear commensurate with age.  Please study the photographs.

Dimensions height 34cm, width 25cm x depth 12cm

Raw Collection

The Raw Collection captures an elemental grandeur for interiors wherein the essence of beautiful materials is celebrated in the raw. The main inspiration for this stylish contemporary collection is the four natural elements: fire, air, earth and water.  Through harnessing the juxtaposed energies of: metal, wood and stone a natural dynamic in design evolves.

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.
