U Collection: Pair of Victorian Cast Iron Balustrade Table Lamps

SOLD

We discovered 2 wonderful Victorian balustrades made of cast iron, layered with paint and character, and instantly knew that with some engineering we could make a very interesting pair of lamps with them. The architectural antiques are weighty and substantial and therefore required significant bases for stability - a pair of antique wooden wall plaques, with a similar patina and soft sage green as the balustrades, suggested base tops. 

Utopia has transformed the balustrades with aged solid brass fittings including: switched bayonet lamp (bulb) holders, brass tubing, around 2 metres of mid-brown cable each and black plugs. 

The lamps look great with filament LEDs or shades. Featured here is a pair of our limited edition (100) English Garden Twilight oval drum shades and a pair of gold vellum rectangular drums which echo the shape of the bases.  Please note that the shades are not included in the price.

Dimensions of each lamp: height 51cm x width 22cm x depth 14cm

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.

Due to size and weight of this pair of lamps we are unable to deliver them and request that you purchase them and collect them from our gallery in North Norfolk. Please let us know in advance when you plan to arrive so that we can have the lamps ready for you. Thank you.
