"Yes, I was watching that auction. Unfortunately, the seller wouldn't ship outside the UK, so I was unable to bid on it. This is the first time I've ever seen a lava lamp that matches the original patent design. I always hoped that one…"
"After looking at the woodgrain pattern on my Windsor Consort, I'm starting to think that this Century is likely a factory finish. Same basic pattern on both lamps. Perhaps it was a prototype, or one of a very small run."
heyo. thanks for ur reply. u are right, the different designs seem endless.
i was shocked when i saw the pictorial !!! but how many were produced back then???
hundreds or even thousands? the lavaboilers never pop up in stylish french movies for
example, they must have been quite extraordinary and weird even then, no!? do you
think they took vast amounts of lsd when they came up with the principles AND designs of those ones?

hi there. you are the reason i have been joining the club here. i saw some discussion of yours regarding french bubblelamps and that pic of those numerous beautifil bubblelamps on thst table ! i wanna have them all ! :)
i also started collecting when i lived in paris 10 years ago, heaven to check ou their brocantes and fleemarkets back then. i specialise in vintage glitterlamps and bubblelamps as i have always called them - the ones made of glass. is there someone who knows about those glass ones so i can understand more about them - any pics or specific sites you know about!?
thanks for your help, best wishes - G
