Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Does anyone have any info on the Crestworth Cosmos please?
I'm especially interested in the one with NO ridges or lines on the cap and base.
I recently got one and i'd like to know its history, i'm not looking because I want to sell it, I just want to know more about it.

Very interesting. The cup and cap are distinctly different from others I've seen.
There's no circular ridge on the cup or cap.
Questions:
Is the base slightly depressed where the stem attaches to it, or is it flat across?
Is the electrical plug UK style or French style (two round metal prongs).?

I've attached a copy of a sale brochure. As far as I know these lamps were made by Crestworth and marketed in France.
Has anyone seen one with a UK style electrical plug?

Hi, I can't tell you if the base is depressed or flat as the lamp is all packed up at the back of a cupboard, I will check later, I seem to think it's flat.
I'd say it's flat as i've just looked at some of the other photos I took of it to show the guy at the "Flow of Lava" website.
If you want I can post them on here for you to examine.
It came with a bayonet type plug, the type that fits into a standard light fitting.
I can remember my mother using one of these to power an iron, it's a wonder she never burnt the house down, LOL.
Anyway let me know about the pics.

Looks like Crestworth UK wiring. Very interesting...
I know, I couldn't believe it when I got it for £1.50 at a Car Boot Sale.
There are a few marks and a dent on it, but it's lovely.
I like the old switch on it too.
Last week I got a Copper Astro Nordic in pristine condition for £3.00, another good day.
I also have a Blue Anodised Telstar lamp, I got that for £8.00.
It's been a very good year so far, all I need now is to get a Lunar and a Millenium Telstar cheap, LOL.
shit... where do you find these bargains.. ??????
Hi Daniele, as if......LOL.
