If the globe is dated what no later than 2002? Is this correct? So 2002 and earlier would be usa manufacture? Thanks.Continue

"I wouldn't worry about it to much, most lamps get floaties from time to time. Some more than others."

"It happens on occasion.  Also sometimes when it cools that top bit will get air bubbles that make it float."

Strange floating wax plug at top

My lamp the Chinese one always has a plug floating at the top after I shut it off. No probs. I wait till its cool and give it shake to break water tension and it goes to the bottom. But I come back and its back at the top again. This must be because of it being so close to the buoyancy of the water and when the water cools to the point that the wax is lighter it goes back up. Anyone see this? I have seen it at the top and shaken it lightly to make it fall but never seen it rising.See More

"A lot of sellers consider them "working" if they move at all. The first few mins after the lava is heated up, it throws up a few blobs. But then it just stays in a mound at the bottom.  Per his listing, he says "inspected and…"

"He said in the ad that he tested them. So yours should work. I would contact him and ask for a refund if it does not work. My lamp shows working photos with the lava in action. What would cause wax not to flow?"

"I got one of those lamps. I will say that 2002 can be a weird year for globes, too. The one I got from that seller (clear/purple) - the lava does not flow. It heats up but does not go anywhere. I've ran it several times now and no action. I had…"

"I've had my eye on some of those.  Not a bad price at all with free shipping.  That is a USA made lamp.  One thing about shipping, at current temperatures lava globes can freeze or at least get very cold.  Let the globe sit…"
