U Collection: Antique French Copper & Brass Fire Hose Nozzle Table Lamp (14)
U Collection: Antique/Vintage Copper & Brass Fire Hose Nozzle Table Lamp (14)
A stylish lamp created from a French copper fire hose nozzle probably dating back to the 1930s. Made of solid copper and brass the nozzle is weighty and in an excellent used condition - the nozzle has been lovingly cared for by the fire fighters who used them. There are some scratches and minor dents on the metal. The brass parts have been professionally polished but the copper body has been only lightly cleaned to retain the attractive black patina of age.
The nozzle has been ‘utopiaised’ into a table lamp with new brass fittings, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted mid-brown cable and a black Bakelite plug. The cherry wood base has been specially hand turned and French polished to compliment the warm tones of the metal. The cable exits discreetly from under the nozzle's base.
The lamp is shown here with an oval brown linen shade and a Hydrangea Bouquet empire shade. Please visit our lampshade collections for more shade designs and prices.
