Yesterday I was browsing my local vintage emporium store when I found a boxed Crestworth Astro Mini for £20. I instantly picked it up and inspected it and found it to not have the original bottle but a Mathmos Glitterbaby bottle (Which I am now using in my Mathmos Neo). I also found inside the box a late Crestworth brochure / poster which I hope to get framed at some point. As I was walking around with the box I realized something wasn't quite as as expected so I inspected further and found out it was a box designed for a Astro slimline. On most sides of the box the slimline name was sticker-ed over and mini put in its place written by hand in red pen. Not only that the shape of the lamp illustrated was much slimmer in shape and then I realized it was the shape of the Astro Illumination featured on this website by CrestworthLimited.
I have posted pictures of the box in the replies section for everyone to see. Ive searched for the 'Astro Slimline' everywhere and I couldn't find any information on it and I couldn't find any other boxes like this one. Has anyone else ever seen a box like this?
I'm keeping this as the jewel in the crown that is my collection, but who knows in the far far future. I really wanted to post this on here as a way of preserving history and so that everyone knows the intended name of the lamp.
