The light bulb went off in the seller's head... "Oh, its a lava lamp". She changed her listing thus putting it on the radar of all the other lava lamp buyers. Thing was, the ceramic base she described it as an "uplight" was worthless especially without the ceramic purple paw print cap. She said she would take care of me since I was so helpful, but then the bids starting coming in. I feared asking about the globe and cap but it wasn't a lava lamp without them.
I was just referring to this Lunar bottle.
astralav I guess you are referring to the coment i once left.
Strange Astro/Telstar hybrid?
Thats a really nice globe, to make one now would be quite hard as firstly you would have to find the same colour and decent glitterball bottles (not that easy as they are getting rair) the other option would be a custom but i doubt mathmos would do that now.
I am sure this was made when the glitterballs were still in production.
Its just courtesy not to talk about open auctions - espshlie if they are a goo deal and the main thing is not to but a link to it if its open.
Ahhh, reminds me of the good old days when ebay's search wasn't very smart. I would search for "lava lamps" and get 2 for the price of one, or less than because those listings would not come up for a search for "lava lamp".
That is exactly what its all about. Sellers sometimes just don't know what they're selling. Stumbled upon a Garfield Icon once listed as a Garfield nightlight. Once I asked about the missing globe and cap it was all over, but you get the point.
Really, I doubt it, its more that they dont want to admit that they did and then consider bringing back the formular or having anything to do whith it - why I don't know as the glitterball was a fantastic lamp and I am sure it will sell if they bring it back.
I know the masterfluid is easy to get hold of as its just one ingredent but the wax is another matter.
Why is it harder to refill a glitterball then other lamps.
mathmos doesnt even know they did glitterballs nowadays:) new masterfluid can be acquired though. but its not just the material...if you never did a refill before, chamces are good to ruin such a big globe as it needs a very calm hand and patience
