Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

they look like they may be a yellow/green washed out something.  they are both 70's.  One is a century and the other is I think its called a carlisle.  the pre wizard one.  I cant tell what color they started out as.  I have the orig box for the century but the color is not marked or indicated.  Guess they forgot.  any ideas? thanks!

 

here is a link to the photos.  just joined so hope this the way to do it!!

Looks like the Century was a blue/white that have faded and burned a bit.  I would not doubt that the Carlisle was the same though it may have been a yellow color.  when a white piece of paper is held behind them, is there any hint of color left at all?

 

Ill check in the morning when the light is better.  The carlisle def has some green to it though.   Is there a place on here that tells what color combos were avail in the 70's.  Or even a list of models avail then?  Iam new.  thanks!

Ahh young padawan, you have not yet discovered the Lava Library, here are the links to your two lamps

Do yours have a date sticker or date anywhere on them?  Some of them had codes that will help determine original colors.

There is a model 104 Century that's blue/green liquid and yellow wax. Or, like Gwen said, the wax could have been white, but cooked. That wax does look like a cooked white, rather than yellow, but hard to tell. Is there a sticker inside the top cap? Sometimes the model is listed on that.

carlisle says april 1977 model 300

and the century is oct 1974 model 100 century.

 

I checked the colors the century is more yellow and the carlisle is yellow green with black flakes in it. yuk

 

I think if I could find the orig color I might try to re-goo them.   the carlisle is pretty spent and the century works for an hour or so.  they are pretty tired ole timers. 

Ah, those are the basic model numbers... 100 being a Century and 300 being a Carlisle. 


The Carlisle is almost definitely a blue liquid, green wax. 


I have a Century, two actually. that are green, green/blue and yellow. See here:

yes the goo looks just like it in the century but there is no blue at all in either lamp's liquid.  its clear in the century but  it might have a very slight yellowish tinge.  carlisle looks very clear wonder what the black flakes are ...burnt goo.  ha ants?.  someone could have messed with the liquid in either one or both at one time trying to make them work.  nice lamps you have btw.
Thanks. ;) I've got a 90s century with little flakes in the wax. Actually, have a few lamps like that. Usually is residue from the coil. Is the coil in good shape?

yes the coil looks ok.  but that's prob what it is.
