Hello everyone. My name is Tim, and I am new to this site. I stumbled across it while looking for information on an old lava lamp that I have had for close to 20 years. When I was a kid, I asked for a lava lamp for Christmas one year because I had seen all of the new lava lamps that were in stores. What I got instead was one that my aunt had sitting around in her house. After looking around the web and this site, I believe it is a Saturna #403. I am looking for any information that I can find on it, and possibly a value was well. I have attached a few pictures of it that I just took.
I see you saw that already. :)
Yep, it's a 403 all right, green lava/blue liquid Saturna, which dates to around 1973 or 74 to maybe 1978 or 79.Saturna is series 400, and 03 is the color, green/blue (the other 70s colors were 02 red/yellow and 06 red/clear).
It's VERY overheated in the photos (using it longer than about 5-6 hours will do that, as shown by too many globs at the top-- or, another symptom is one big glob hovering near the bottom). This is one I'd love to find, as would many collectors-- in my opinion, you got something far better than a new one!
