We have transformed an unusual antique hand warmer into a charming table lamp. The front has a ribbed detail plus a side handle with a wooden detail.
The warmers were traditionally covered in carpet and filled with hot water or coals then placed inside a carriage to help keep the occupant warm.
The transformation includes: a handmade stepped oak base with a French polished finish, chrome fittings with an B22 lamp holder, 2 metres of black twisted, retro-style fabric cable and a black plug.
The lamp is dressed here with on of our Arboretum drum shadesand an ovalshade. Please note that the price does not include the shade.
Condition: The antique is in lovely condition with only minor signs of wear.
Dimensions: height 36cm
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 traditional plugs, whilst having the peace of mind that your light is safe, having been completely wired/rewired by experts using modern fittings.
