U Collection: Victorian Black Metal Standish Table Lamp

This wonderful and highly unusual Victorian standish has been transformed into a unique table lamp by Utopia. It is made of cast metal, probably brass, with floral flourishes around the edge and handles. The original removable glass inkwells are in good clean order with hinged opening lids and orb tops. The ink stand has 4 metal legs.

The standish is in great condition with minor signs of wear. 

The lamp has been created with gunmetal fittings: a switched bayonet 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 15cm/6" drum shades in brushed steel - it would look equally attractive with a different design.

Dimensions: height 23cm x width 27cm x depth 13cm.

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.

Utopia charges a flat rate of £10 for all deliveries.
