Night of the Hunter

This is a group for those who have an interest in the so-called Hunter lava lamps named after their founder, Mr John Edward Hunter who attempted a patent on his Sata-Lite model in c. 1970. Later version was called the Sparkle-Lite using glittery strands in the liquid. They came in various designs but more or less one size and with only one bottle type but numerous colour combos in both wax and sparkly strands to glitter.

How Low can you Go?

Just a bit of fun really. See if you can post some pics/comments of lamps (both glitter and lava) where the water levels are so low as to be believed. Have you ever seen a quarter or even a fifth full lamp for sale or displayed anywhere?See More

Modulo '70 replied to Gijzzz's discussion Any experience with removing dents from copper hunter lamp? in the group Night of the Hunter
"I like that particular shape of base. Hunter's have character. I say leave the dents and scratches. All part of an old lamps charm. Having said that, I guess you can 'iron out' the dints."

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

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.

Thanks for reaching out! My 1977 Model 100 took a topple (I was not there or would have kept the broken cap) and is now missing half its cap. I am eager to find a cap for it but don't see it online There are many discussions here. Where should I go? Thanks so much for reaching out. this is a great group.
