Ebay Score! Original Lava Lite Squiggle Aristocrat Champagne Mist New In Box!

Just wanted to share this epic Ebay score! Purchased as non-functional from Ebay for a great price knowing it needed it's fluid and possibly wax restored. It's a Lava Lite Squiggle Aristorcat in Champage Mist with original box and the base/cap are perfect. When it arrived it wouldn't turn on at all, when I went through the electrical components in base I found the reason why it was non-functional...wires were attached in base! A quick strip of the wires and attaching them correctly and the lamp fired right up!

Knew the fluid was clouded and would need to be restored but when I dumped it the wax looked smooth and pristine! I don't believe this lamp was ever used due to the issues with the electrical connections. Swapped out the old fluid for distilled water and tinkered with some surf from Magma Tower. Lamp runs like a DREAM and looks beautiful! Stoked for my first squiggle ever as I primarily collect Centuries and CoachLights 

What does everyone think??

When you said "champagne mist" I was hoping to see it in action.  I guess there wouldn't be much to see in this!

I wonder if you tried cycling the globe with the original fluid it it would clear up enough to be enjoyable?

You know you're a collector when original boxes are exciting, lol

And these pictures are just absolutely gorgeous!  Great redo job 

Awesome score, superb!!

NIce! 
Great color

Still looking for a squiggle decorator planter but they seem to NEVER come up for sale

That's a great (and rare) score! Congrats! Well done on the resto, too! Very cool to see one of these. 

Thanks y'all for your kind responses and kudos!!!

There was actually the decorator squiggle model on eBay a few weeks back. I made the seller an offer (which was declined!). I think they wanted like $90 for the lamp in working condition + something obscene like $45.00/shipping?! I offered them $100.00 for the lamp and said as long as he packaged the lamp appropriately I would be fine with cheap/slow shipping and would pay for insurance. They declined.....bummer!
