Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

I have an original cylinder that has never been used and the original box it was shipped in. I am thinking about selling it if there is enough interest and the price is right. I don't trust any carriers to ship the cylinder, so pick up is the only option. I have included many pictures of the cylinder and the box it came in. I live in a southern suburb of Chicago. This cylinder has never been used.

Critter, I do not have any messages yet. Maybe I am looking in all the wrong places.

look for a new friend request from me.  Once you accept the request we can PM, etc

The globe is sold! It is getting picked up next weekend. Thank you for taking the time to view this post. I won't disclose the name of the person that is purchasing or the price. That information will have to come from the buyer if they want to disclose that information. 

It's pretty obvious who the buyer is ;)

Makes sense since he is one of only a few collectors here lucky enough to actually own an Imperial! 

The person that is purchasing has everything but the globe. they are very happy.

I would love to purchase this if only I had an Imperial lamp base to put it on :(

This is going to make some Imperial owner very happy!

I will never say. that is up to the buyer. Believe me that buyer is going to be very happy,

A lovely super rare tem and even the box is precious.

Wow a gem! If I'm not mistaken that color combo might me called Champagne Mist? I know Lamphead or Jonas would know for sure.

Hi Doc.

A 1966 Lava brochure lists 3 colour combos: Orange/clear, green/clear, and red/clear. It's possible that other color combos may exist though.

Note the slight red color to the liquid in this globe. The liquid in my Imperial was a murky red color before I restored it. I personally think the red color is the result of a chemical degrading of the liquid over time.

Also, the brochure list the metal finish as white enamel. Interesting. Is there an enamel finish Imperial floating around out there?

I've been collecting for 20 years, and there are a few lamps I've still never seen. The enamel finished Imperial, and the one piece base early Century (as seen in very early promotional photos) are two of them.
