    Coach Lantern Model? Value?

    Started by S Howard in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by Todd Miller 5 hours ago. 6 Replies

    I've really enjoyed lurking around here, and now I have an actual question for you all, I hope you can help.I have this Coach Lantern (see photos) that was given to me as a gift. I was hoping to get more info about it. I read the really great PDF on the history of this puppy, but I'm still having trouble placing it.

    New Mathmos Lamp

    Started by doddy in Collecting. Last reply by Critter yesterday. 4 Replies

    On the latest Mathmos blog, they say they are releasing a new lamp in the autumn. What are your thoughts? Do any of you have any information? I am hoping that it's a larger lamp like the lunar, but knowing Mathmos it will be another Neo variant or use the astro bottle. Let's at least hope we get some new interesting colourways as the current range is getting a bit stagnant now. Continue

    Well, never did i think after building the first Fantasia Cosmos 2 lamp that I would not only regret that sale but also the amount of requests I have gotten over the past few years from multiple sources to please build more. So I decided to invest in the project and have a whole new batch built, each one by me right here in my home, (4 total). My inspiration and motivation to build even the first one came from the endless hunt for a Cosmos lamp only to miss out on every opportunity that came my…Continue
