"I've have a couple of Vallauris lamps. In my opinion, the goo is junk. I't's very thin and sticky. The liquid smells really toxic. I think, as you say, it's better to simply switch out the contents. I'd love to get my hands…"

fog rider replied to Mark's discussion Just missed a Crestworth Wall Lamp Deluxe
"Wow. Nice score for somebody.  I notice what looks like a plastic (or metal?) grille in the top of the lamp's body. That's something I personally haven't seen before. Also, most wall mounts are glitter. I might be wrong, but to…"

"No, was looking for some information on the Humongo (don't think they were available here unless it was a private import) t and noticed the OG database said it used 100w R20. :/"

The Lamp Caretaker replied to fog rider's discussion Mathmos Lunars, not rare.
"You are so correct.  When I was running the HUMONGO on the 150W lamp it came with it took almost a day and a half to begin flowing. And the flow was boring like a 32oz globe.   When I placed the correct specified lamp in…"

"I think that link is wrong as a 100 watt bulb is not going to make the lava flow in a Humongo A Humongo is the same size as a Colossus that originally came with a 200 watt bulb. I use a 300 watt Phillips bulb with my Colossus lamps as It get's…"

Hello, I have a quick question for ya... how rare are the 32 oz chocolate globes?

I ordered a new replacement bottle last week at Mathmos UK. It´s no a refill bottle!!! This bottle was very expensive (155€) I´m so happy that Mathmos produce custom made bottles.

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?
best wishes - G

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
