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.
"The caps were add custom caps. No I can't sell them, but if you watch eBay my family will probably sell all 500 lava lamp when I am gone from this world. What you see here is a small part of my collection. I have advertising lamps, space ships,…"
I'm preparing a bio and trying to create just the right picture of my one lonely lava lamp. Actually there were two, but I discovered that in the afternoon, just about the time after I have left for work, every day, THIS BEAM of sunlight snuck into my room and bleached out what once was a wonderful mauve-like sort of magenta liquid, turning it completely clear. Sorry I've oozed on... I'll post my pics very soon. Thank you.
Hi Nancy, thanks for the fine welcome! I got my first 3 lamps a week ago and have already read 90% of the archives so far. I came with a few questions but also have some observations of my own to add. I'm sure I'll find my answers here.
