I have no wife so I am free to purchase/collect what I want. 

You definitely have a Comet with a very nice spray on it!

It uses a 558 bulb -

I purchased spare bulbs for all my Fantasia lamps online a few years ago.

Vintage type bulbs are getting harder and harder to find now as they have been replaced with new LED style bulbs.

Almost all of my fantasia lamps have a sticker inside of them that tell exactly what type of bulb should be used with the lamp.

You are a wise person. And your collection is AMAZING. I will show it to my wife when she complains I have too many lamps. You are right about these two lamps probably being Sprites. No motor and a small spray. And weirdly, a normal screw in bulb. And I think you're right on the Comet, also. It does rotate.  Any idea about bulbs? Have you ever shopped at bulbs plus at 29th/Sheridan in Wheat Ridge? Thanks again.

Hi Scott,

The fiber optic lamp in your picture is NOT a Fantasia New Star.

A New Star spray should be considerably larger and I see no color wheel or motor on your lamp?

I think what you have is called a Sprite  -

I do not have a Sprite as I only collect fiber optic lamps that change color or rotate.

Your lamp that has a cylindrical medium size faux wood base made out of cardboard is called a Fantasia Comet.

Thanks so much for getting back to me. Sorry for my delayed response. It's taken my tech challenged butt this long to figure out how to send pictures. Had to have my 12 year old daughter help.

I'm pretty sure my lamps are Fantasia. They have the green felt and UL and Fantasia stickers on the bottom. But the bulbs are the USA screw in bulbs, not "plug in" halogens as pictured. The bulb I have that works fine is this one. It says 120v Japan on the bottom but does not mention anything about watts.

I own 6 Fantasia fiber optic lamps; 2 Centurions, 2 New Stars, an Alpha and one with a cylindrical medium size faux wood base made out of cardboard. All the sprays set into their respective inserts perfectly except the ones on these two New Stars. They fit, but don't slide down into the holders. They just kind of set about 1/8" into the hole and need to be slightly jammed in, rather than cleanly siding in.

I've added a few pictures, thanks to my daughter. Two show the bulb and two show haw the spray sits. Thanks again for your time.

Hey Scott, I use a T10  Halogen 15 watt bulb with my Fantasia New Stars.

I bought a box of them on Ebay a couple years ago.

I only see these halogens on Ebay currently   -

Not sure what to say about your sprays since I can not see them.

This is what my New Star Sprays looks like - 

These are the bulbs that I use with them - 

I hope this information helps you!

I have two new stars I bought on Ebay for pretty cheap. One of them came with a burned out bulb and I replaced it with an LED bulb that is just way too weak to light the lamp. Do you know where I could buy a new bulb or how to figure out what kind of bulb to buy? Also, I notice you mentioned the bottom of the sprays on New Stars are bigger than most. Neither of them set into the lamp like other fiber optic lamps I have. The sprays seem to large for the lamps. I'd send pics but my phone.email aren't cooperating.

I live in Denver too. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have all 4 of these Fantasia lamps and I like the New Star the best!

You can't tell from the picture above but it's spray is substantially bigger than the others.

It's unique med-large sized spray is too large/wide to fit other Fantasia lamps but it's not large enough to fit a Sunburst.

I'd take the Moderne over there.

That is my bucket list lamp!!!!!!  Not really sure which one I want to set my sights on.  They are all so beautiful.  I better start saving up now....

Comment by Jonas Clark-Elliott on January 4, 2015 at 12:29pm

Finally, one of the few unidentified models is named-- the Moderne!!
