U Collection: Edwardian Oak Standish Table Lamp with Silver Plated Lidded Glass Inkwells
An attractive antique oak standish has been transformed into a unique table lamp by Utopia. An oak base holds 2 glass inkwells with silver plated lids and 2 pen trays.
Condition: The standish has been painted black and shows some signs of wear with odd pieces of the beaded edge being worn and the silver plate is scratched. The removable glass inkwells are fine. Overall it is an elegant piece.
The lamp has been created by putting the base on 4 chrome ball feet then adding chrome fittings including: a switched bayonet (B22) lamp holder with shade ring, 2 metres of twisted, retro-style black fabric cable and a black plug.
The lamp is shown here with one of our oval limited edition (100) Open Book shades from the Literati Collection and a shallow oval drum shade with old gold lining- it would look equally attractive with a different design. Please note that the price is for the lamp only - the shade is an extra cost.
Dimensions: width 31 x depth 20cm x height 20cm
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.
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.
