    70's Lava Lamp - Lava stops flowing

    Started by A in Problems & Questions. Last reply by kero48 yesterday. 6 Replies

    Hi everyoneI recently purchased a old century off etsy and I found out that the cap has a hairline crack and the liquid seeps out.  I'm really sad to see this because I love the lamp so much.  I believe it's from the 60's.  I can't make out the date on the inside of the globe.  I attached a couple pics below.  Anyone have a spare cap I could have? …Continue
