Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

if an old lamp has a new bottle, how should that affect the price?

i was just wondering, as i have seen a few lovely old lamps with new bottles on them, and cant help thinking this should decrease the value?
I know the new bottle would have cost a bit but i would deffo pay more for the original bottle, even if it was a bit cloudy etc, just for the authenticity of it.

What are peoples views on this please?

I say, I wouldn't even lift a finger to save my own grand mother from the ravenous bugblatter beast of trall without an order signed, in triplicates, sent in, sent back, queried, lost, found, subjected to public inquiry, lost again and finally burried in soft peat for three months and recycled as fire lighter!

I tend to agree.

In my humble opinion, my own preferences, in order:

1. All original, clear globe with nice wax.
2. Filtered globe with nice wax.
3. Refilled globe, or replaced globe, nice flowing wax.

The old wax just has such nice stringy flow. The new Lava world wax just doesn't flow nicely. Some of the newer Mathmos lamps flow quite nicely, though.

Cheers.
well all of my lamps have orig globes appart from my dads crestworth! and i wouldnt consider paying lots of money for an old lamp unless its funnly orig! unless its a lunar : P
