Not long ago I acquired a mark I Crestworth astro lamp with the metal work in extremely good condition. However, the bottle contents leave a little to be desired.I have a new violet red bottle and I…Continue
"Yeah prices hiked up yesterday. The astro from 68 to 75. The heritage and copper 74 to 80. The Neo 68 to 70. And the metallic 78 to 85.
So not just a little hike but a biggy. Astro bottles are also now £30 each.
They really need to up…"
Make sure you get in touch with them and show them the photos too, they should send you a new globe. By the way mine was way worse than yours, seriously scruffed, lots of scratches, two pits where the metallic has totally nearly come…"
"The Neo and Telstar lamps have embossed branding on the lower metalwork. The astro and baby astro no longer have any branding on the metalwork. All of the newer bottles now have the branding on them in a silvery metallic type paint. "
"If your bottle is faulty in ANY way, then it is their duty to replace in all cases, but if you're just not happy with it then it is your duty to pay carriage.
I am sure if you found any scratch or mark on your item after opening then let…"
"If you have a problem with any of your lamps from Mathmos then yes do contact them, the only way we will get decent lamps is if we collectively complain to them. Heaven knows they must be sick of me, but not as sick as I am of their poor quality…"
"The quality of the bases is very good. The only drawback is the rubbishy cheap white plastic legs that really let the whole thing down (on the astro and astrobaby). The telstar has a cheap flex that lets the light through.
It is the bottles that…"
"I am a collector so will be keeping, however, not before giving mathmos a grilling.
So its had its first 6 hour run, theres a huge clump of dye floating on the top that just wont sink and mix see pic. Also we r sat here relieved that its now…"
"Can I ask you guys what condition your bottles were in when you got them?
I got mine today and it is badly grazed scratched and not nice. The bluewax inside is also badly mixed and is very speccled.
I am most unhappy and will speak with…"
"Already showing as out of stock. Glad ive got mine arriving tomorrow. I emailed Mathmos as they said that theres only a very limited amount of bottles being made and it is unlikely to be a mass produced product. "
"Hi, I live in the UK and have many Mathmos lamps. Sometimes you need to take the caps off either to top up or replace contents.
By far the easiest way (and not to damage the contents, which other suggestions may well do), is to simply hold the…"
"Erin, check the reflector in the base is seated correctly, then fit the bottle into the top then slide the whole lot into the base. My two lamps are perfect apart from the violet pink which was a little low on fluid. Totally amazing lamps. "
"I have one of these new bottles with the blue blue mix, but it definitely is not blue turquoise. It is, however, much lighter than the original blue blue. I would also like to see violet turquoise in an astro bottle. "
