I apologize about the delay, but as at least one of you knows, last week was a nightmare. The good news is that I passed my CMS audit last week. The better news... things are mellowing out and its time to move some lamps!There is one lamp/globe that I am seeking and that is a red/white 52 ounce US globe. Would prefer with a midnight Aristocrat base/cap, but will work with just the globe. You have this globe and its high quality, you are bumped up in the queue.Lamps come from a cigarette smoke…Continue

I have been wanting to add a fluidium to my collection for quite some time. My preference is bright colors that pop like yellow, orange, or opal. Also I have seen several custom fluidium that were killer. I just prefer it to be clear master fluid... Obviously. So anyone willing to sell me fluidium? I hope you all are doing well and appreciate everyone's time.Continue
What bulbs do you guys use for your Mathmos Astros and Astrobabies? I was at my local Tesco and all the had was rather rubbish looking LED replacements... I left almost having a panic attack! I see on the Mathmos site they are now shipping Astros and Astrobabies with 2 pin halogen bulbs now? What does the future hold? I don't want to spend a fortune getting replacement bases. I really need bulbs for my babies!Continue
In the last couple of years I have acquired three of these lamps, on auctions and on Amazon UK when on sale. So the three of them together have barely reached the £30 mark. I have to say. I am really impressed with these. Good flow and a good time before over heating.I own two of the 'Torpedo' Lamps (one red and clear, and one blue and clear) one of the 'Twist' lamps, (clear and blue) I have even witnessed the Twist lamp almost Snake on occasion.I am posting because they were everywhere at one…Continue
Hi, I'm new here and hoping for some advice. I have what I think maybe a vintage Mathmos lamp, but unfortunately the wax is stuck to the sides and sits at the bottom. I'm not sure where to start with trying to revive it or whether I would just be better starting over. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.Continue
Hi All,I've got a Mathmos Jet lamp that has lost the violet colour from its liquid. What's the best way of restoring it? The bottle has a screw cap so it shouldn't be a problem to open.CheersDazContinue
Seems to me like the popular gold bases with the holes should of been glittered. It didn't take long to paint, partlly because the Rust-Oleum spray nozzle stopped working after half the can maybe less. But it was good enough and looked great…Continue

When checking the liquid out in the parking lot, it…Continue
I'm new here and a newbie collector, but have always had some type of lava since childhood. Searched site and still had a question. Is it possible to still have a cloudy lava lamp arrive via shipping, that is brand new from a know company, or is…Continue
