I think the stickers are made of a colored plastic film similar to what I used for my orange one.

If a hot bulb touches them they will burn/melt.

I discovered that when I tried putting a Fantasia glitter bottle on a Crestworth Rocket!

The 25 watt bulb that a Fantasia Glitter lamp uses is positioned about a half inch below the bottom of the bottle so the sticker does not burn.

Thanks for the info - fascinating, and like all good ideas, really quite simple... which is why it works well and looks great, I guess...

When you made your custom orange sticker, please may I ask - did you find out if the stickers were made of special heat-proof material, or is it coloured plastic film? or acetate?

I was thinking, there must be a 30 or 40w incandescent  bulb in these lamps, they're same kind of size as the Rockets, (though glitter may need less wattage?), and that would generate a fair bit of heat, wouldn't it?

Fantasia glitter lamps, including the Cosmic Window, came with 5 different color stickers that can be stuck on the bottom of the bottle to change the color of the glitter.

YELLOW - GREEN - RED - RAINBOW - BLUE

Without the stickers they would all look the same.

One of my Windows is using no sticker ( top center ) and I made a custom orange sticker for the one on the bottom right.

The Cosmic Window is my favorite lamp and I would like to obtain more so I could build a larger pyramid of them ( lol ) but they are super rare to find in good condition.

I make it 7 Brits, 7 US...

Are the 7 Cosmic Windows the complete series? I've never seen so many up together, beautiful lamps!

And not a wire in sight

Yes, a Crestworth Rocket uses the same bottle as a Mathmos Jet.
