Hey guys! I came across this lamp at a flea market. Anybody know what it is?  I didn't buy it because the booth owner wasn't there. There is no marking anywhere on it. I may pick it up if its still…Continue

Transparent paint

Does anyone know of a truly transparent spray paint. I want to do my own version of the colormax, and I found transparent spray enamel made by testors. I tried it, but it is far too opaque.

Anyone have an extra consort bottle?

I was at a local store where the guy sells stuff he gets at estate sales and other similar places. I've been going out there since I was just a baby, so the owner knows me, and tries to help me out.…Continue

Crappy Lava Lite 52oz lamp from Spencer's

"I'm glad I found a good batch! The quality is completely hit or miss. I wish they would just fill the bottles in their Chicago factory, even just for premium lines. I have been impressed with the glass quality of my most recent China made…"

New clear/blue

This is the new clear/blue lava lite bottle from spencers. I saw it on display, and noticed it was flowing better than the other lamps on display. I new I had to get one of these from that batch, and I had a coupon, so I went for it. It's been…

Antique Mall Find

"I actually love the aged look of the box. Great find."

Cowmatian replied to Emil D. Nguyen's discussion USA Globe and Clarity
"Yeah, I know what you mean. It is like an "orange peel" texture. I have only noticed it on some lamps, and all have been smaller than 52 oz. It has to have been something with the mold used by lava lite's glass maker."

"Thanks critter! I was thinking about the color coming from the bottom , as well as the possibility of a coating on the outside of the bottle. If you made a smooth color changing rainbow wheel with clear dots spaced around it, would the effect be a…"

"These color wheels look awesome! Is your wheel coating clear enough to do your own "colormax" lamp? I have tried many different techniques and cannot get it to turn out clear. If so, custom colormax bottles would be really cool. I would…"

1993 aristocrat new coil

"Hmm.. thanks for sharing... I might just try this"
Mar 28, 2016
Cowmatian replied to Rich C's discussion So is this a vintage item or a recent knockoff?
"I came across a very similar lamp at a local goodwill, and thought it looked 70s/80s. It had a polarized plug (I know it could have been replaced), a plastic lamp socket, the classic chinese lamp cap (aluminum with do not drink written on it), and…"
