An antique silver plated dish tray repurposed into a table lamp

  • An elegant, silver plated oval dish holder that I have repurposed into a unique table lamp.
  • I wanted to keep all the ornate detail of the 1930’s metal work visible and keep the nice hollow shape of the vessel, so I created a clear Perspex inset for the dish.
  • I then poured a thin layer of resin onto the Perspex to create a shiny, dappled and robust surface for the lamp stem.
  • The silver chrome lamp stem appears to hover on the surface of the resin.
  • I have added a small dark red ball to the base to provide a touch of colour and character to the lamp.
  • I’ve also used a lovely burgundy braided cable that complements the design.
  • The vintage glass shade sits within a silver cup, with a spring clip to hold it in place securely.
  • The transparent shade has similar detail and patterning to the dish, and creates a lovely warm light.
  • The lamp has a silver bayonet cap lamp holder that takes a B22 bulb, which is included in the price.
  • There is a black inline switch midway along the cable to turn the lamp on and off with ease.
  • All electrical items used are new and approved by CE standards.
  • The lamp has been PAT tested.
  • I love the character and nostalgic charm of the object, with its four bun feet and twin handles. The silver shine and detailing are also lovely features.
  • There are two of these available, the other listing is made using a slightly larger dish. Let me know if you are interested in both, and I can offer a reduction in price.
  • Dimensions: 25 x 35 x 15 cms
