Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Hello all,


I have a question for you.  I have two American versions of the Coachlite.  One is the copper colored one with the "fill plug" on the right with red lava.  The other one is the golden colored one with the greenish blue lava.  I haven't seen many in that color.


Which one would be worth the most?  I am contemplating selling one of them, but I want to keep the rarer of the two.


I've attached photos, but the one of the red lamp isn't very good and it's not flowing, but it flows marvelously once it's warm.


Thank you in advance for any replies!

Check that date in the cap, quick! And check to see if that coral-y globe has LESS lava than your other Centuries. It might be something even better than a white/blue!

i think the sticker inside the lid says 1973 but its hard to tell because there is a layer of wax on the golbe around the air gap. the color of the wax is similar to this one http://oozinggoo.ning.com/photo/model-101-green-red-century and its but its not as cloudy and i dont think the water is green. it looks like a very pale yellow but not the same golden yellow as the coach clear/red turns from age. it hard to tell with the fog. ill post pics when i get a chance.

i filtered it today and it came out great. i uploaded some before and after pics as well as close ups of the wax color.

Posted info on colors on one of your photos. Basically, you don't have a rare Gen. 3 Coachlite blue/white - you have an even rarer combo, a globe that was probably available only barely at the very beginning of Gen. 3 production. And it filtered beautifully and flows well.

wow...awesome! thankyou sooo much for the info! it is really a gorgeous lamp now that its clear :)

For more info on Coach Lanterns go to the Lava Library, click on "Coachlite (Lanterns)" and scroll down to a little writeup I recently posted on the Coach Lantern varieties. You might find it helpful. There are actually 4 distinct types of vintage Coach Lanterns from Lava.
