Hi Helen.
Keep an eye on what's being listed on eBay UK as I recently purchased a new blue/blue discontinued bottle for the Astrobaby & Telstar. Which could become surplus to requirements depending on if I like a Glitterbaby or not. Have a look on http://60slights.ning.com also on the off chance someone has one to sell.
Regards John.

Welcome to Oozing Goo - the lava lamp syndicate. Although Mathmos may not do replacement bottles for the Mk1 Telstar or Jet models it is sometimes possible to find a replacement bottle on Ebay.
