Any lamp is fair game now, not just the beatles and harley lamps. This thread has grown far beyond my expectations! 0.0
I really dont understand why these are always listed for ridiculous amounts. I see them all the time for $100 buy it now. I have a harley lamp and I want to sell it because I dont like it. Someone locally tried to sell me a beatles lamp for $100. Are these people nuts? Why do they all seem to list them for stupidly high prices?
Anyways I thought it would be fun to see who can find the most over priced harley davidson or beatles submarine lamp.
I am setting the bar really high.
$274.99 Buy it now.
I agree Critter...
Knowing how difficult it is for you guys to get Mathmos lamps let alone a Lunar, I would beg steal and borrow to buy this beauty if I lived in the USA.
Long discontinued. Even in the UK they bring $600 plus for average condition. Buying one out of the UK and shipping it state side usually gets to the $1K range.
That Lunar is a relative bargain. If I had the means I would buy it immediately.
I can confirm that $1,000.00 USD is NOT a bad price for a good condition Lunar.
I have purchased 10 Lunars from the UK in the past 7 years and my least expensive one still cost me a total of $950.00
I sold a USA wired Lunar on Ebay last year ( auction style ) for $990.00
I will not do that again as Paypal and Ebay charged me about $150.00 in fees!
If you live in Europe it is certainly possible to find a Lunar for less money, but if your located in the USA then you will have a VERY hard time obtaining one for less than 1K.
It cost's about $250.00 USD just to safely ship a Lunar to the USA and then you may or may not receive an additional customs fee of about $75.00.
It takes a certain level of craziness to want to spend 1K on a Lava lamp, however the Lunar is worth it as it is far superior to other lava lamps.
The only lava lamps that I would rank higher than a Lunar would be an Imperial or a Crestworth Princess both of which are extremely expensive and nearly impossible to find, except for Critter.
It has a chip in the cone and it probably does not have a dimmer switch as the wiring is not original.
Still worth 1K in the USA however.
