Grace Collection: Giant Antique Hand-Hammered Copper Whiskey Jug Lamp
A giant antique solid copper whiskey jug makes a handsome lamp. The craftsmanship of the antique is superb and on careful inspection one can see how the jug has been made with dovetailed joints in the copper.
Please note that the overall condition of the jug is fabulous but there are a few dents, particularly on one side (see photos) but not enough to detract from its appeal in our opinion.
The lamp has been created using new solid brass fittings including: an E27 lamp holder, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted mid brown cable, an inline switch and a black plug that exits discreetly from near the base. A special top plate has been engineered in solid brass to house the electrical fittings.
Dimensions height 63cm x base diameter 38cm
The lamp is shown here with one of our gold vellum coolie shades. Please note that the price is for the lamp only.
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 and plugs, whilst having the peace of mind that your light is safe, having been completely wired/rewired by experts using modern fittings.
