Quick question ...

"I think these are the single cylinder Astro-Lites. They will have a very low wattage bulb. Good luck with the restoration."

"It’s a shame, I mean, Lava Lites are available here in the UK so why not Mathmos in the States?"

Mathmos, Poole, England

Gosh, is it really only a week since my trip to sunny Dorset and to the Mathmos factory in Poole? The folks we met there were really nice and friendly and even let us look around the place including where they fill the bottles!

I spotted a nice boxed Faze 2 lamp there but alas it was not for sale.

It was nice to see the permanent display of current products and my friend Paul and I even made a couple of purchases, Paul a nice replacement Astro bottle in Violet/Orange and I… Continue

Thank you!  I bet Jim had a lava lamp. I’m new at this. Still playing with my vintage century. It forms a ball and floats in the middle. Unsure what to add/do.

Thanks for the warm welcome, Modulo. Still feeling my way around here. Stumbled across the ning while trying to ID/find parts for a stray globe and got sucked in.

Hi, thanks for the friend request. I bought the lamp on my Avatar at a local car boot sale in around 1999 for £2. I have'nt been able to find out much about it. It was definately factory made, the top with the three bulbs is not a later addition. It is 1960's as it has the early "Arcolectric" switches, brass bulb holders and the pre-1970 red/black/green wiring colours. All of the bulbs are identical old "Bell" branded ones, which supports my "Prototype or exhibition" theory as it was'nt in regular use for long enough to need any bulbs replaced. Shortly after buying it, I took it to Mathmos (they are about 8 miles from where I live), they thought it might be an early prototype, but had no records from the early Crestworth days. The lamp presumably should have had a shade of some type, which is missing.
