U Collection: Late Victorian Standish Lamp with Original Brass Domed Lidded Inkwells
This wonderful Victorian standish has been transformed into a unique table lamp by Utopia. All parts are original including an oak base with a dainty cast brass handle, 2 glass inkwells with domed brass lids that fit tightly into brass holders and 2 pen trays.
Condition: It has aged attractively with only minor signs of wear. The removable inkwells are in great working condition with brass hinged opening lids.
The lamp has been created by putting the base on 4 brass ball feet then adding brass fittings including: a switched bayonet lamp holder with shade ring, 2 metres of twisted, retro-style mid-brown 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: base 26cm x width 15cm
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.
