"Finding a giant globe may be a challenge.  I would do the transfer if it were mine, just make sure the grande globe is in good shape.   Some grande globes have uneven glass, not to mention inclusions (air bubbles in the glass)"

Giant Transfer to Grande Bottle

I've got a blue/white giant globe that I absolutely love, but its got a hairline crack in the globe. I want to transfer the contents to a grande globe that I have but im worried that the thinner glass might affect how the lamp acts. Should I focus on finding a giant globe for the transfer or should I go ahead with the grande switch? See More

"I used to have lava lamps in the 90's. After that I had none until I went to my local flea market and found an older bob marley lava lamp. After that I got back into it, it's that simple. I don't collect per say but I do have several…"

Adam replied to Rory's discussion What made you start collecting?
