Wow, what an impressive collection! I have not been interested in the glitter lamps, but after seeing your collection I want one-they look very tasteful compared to what you usually see! I read an old post of yours about the tower lava lamp-I have one too, but i really dislike the colors-I would change them except that I can't get the top off. Have you tried to get yours off? It won't budge!
I have to tell you that if it wasn't for your interview in the Collectibles Mag back in '95 I wouldn't be as into my collection as I am today! (I was then only 15) When I saw the Saturna and Capri along with the planter, I was hooked! So I wanted to say thanks and compliment you on your awesome collection, especially the spaghettis, fiber optics, and Fab 50's lamps / scupltures.
Nice take on the Hank Williams tunes man! Thanks for posting your myspace page.
Your lighting collections are... I'm speechless. Just went thru your pics 4 times and going back in again! WOWster. Wow Ster. Wow. wow.
Dude, many thanks for turning me on to the Gordon Bradt Kinetco Electric Kinetic Sculptures. I just p/u a way clean fisherman and it so cool! I Love it as there is going to be many happy hours watching that dog trying to boat his catch. Thanks again for puttin me on to it!
Thanks Bryin for the link and sharing all the cool collectibles that you pursue. It inspires me to keep searching and learning about more cool stuff to surround myself with. I am finding the collecting of the lamps and other things brings me much joy and you are opening more doors for me to enter and explore - Thanks again!!
As for rarer, I have a consort, elegant, and elegant planter with original flowers that are all coming up for sale. Both of the elegants are all original and flow beautifully. I might also have a Gem Lite glitter and a Capri as well.
Hi there. I saw a Florence Art Co. lamp on ebay the other day. I could not be there for the end of the auction, so I had to bid early. At the last minute I was outbid by a dollar. Here is a link to the auction that I lost:
I just love this type of lamp and would love to find one. I am not sure it was yours, but I saw a link that had a wonderful collection of these (also there was the same photo from another link owned by "Suffering Clown" - but I couldn't find them on oozinggoo): http://vintageglitters.carbonmade.com/projects/54124
Are these yours? They're really magnificent!!! I am hoping that you could help me. I have no reference for the value of these or the rarity of these Florence Art Co. glitters. I would love to know what these go for and how often they show up, as well as if you know ANYWHERE that I might be able to buy one. Any information that you could share would be greatly appreciated. If these aren't yours and you have no idea what I am talking about, please forgive me (I am a newcomer and just joined last night).
P.S. I do a lot of antique/flea market shopping and see lots of stuff. If you're interested in something in particular, please let me know (post a photo and give me some details) and I will have a good look around for you.
