A charming and quirky table lamp created from a brass car horn from a vintage car. Made of solid brass, the horn is in lovely used condition with only minor pitting and a few marks - please study the photographs to assess its patina. We're wondering what type of vintage car it adorned?
Wired to current British Standards with brass fittings and retro-style, twisted mid-brown fabric cable and a black plug. The horn has been attractively fixed, using tiny brass screws, to a specially turned oak base. This has been polished to bring out the warm colour in the wood, which also compliments the metal. The neck has been engineered with a universal joint (pivoting device), so that the angle of the bulb holder can be changed to align upright. The flex exits discreetly from the wooden base.
The lamp can be used with or without a shade. It is shown here with one of our parchment coolie shades but would look equally attractive with a different design.Please visit our lampshade collections for more options and prices. An LED filament would work equally well.
Dimensions height 40cm, base diameter 21.5cm
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 historical Bakelite plugs, whilst having the peace of mind that your light is safe, having been completely wired/rewired by experts using modern fittings.
