    How much wax in Mathmos lamps, Astro vs baby?

    Started by Mark Britten in General Goo. Last reply by Susan 3 hours ago. 1 Reply

    After a long long gap of decades, I purchased a new Mathmos Astro, and was slightly disappointed in the amount of "goo" it contained. Back in the 70s our Crestworth Astro seemed to have more wax, more activity and seemed to flow better.I recently added a Baby to the living room and it seems to have as much wax as its older brother and is consequently more interesting to look at. Am I imagining this? Has anyone compared volumes? Am I a nerd with no life? (Don't answer the last question).Continue

    Collectors and first 100 important announcement.

    Started by Jezza in Collecting. Last reply by Jezza 7 hours ago. 10 Replies

    On the Mathmos Blog, there's an important information notice about future first 100 releases. Anyone wishing to collect a first 100 lamp should read this first before buying. It looks like the UK gets half and Germany gets half of all new first 100 lamps. Personally, i think this is wrong as Mathmos is a UK company therefore we, sorry WE, should get first divvies. Yes here in the UK. However, I am looking forward to some new finishes and some new models too. But have practically given up on…Continue

    Mathmos Lunar / io bottles.

    Started by Lava_Head_UK in Problems & Questions 9 hours ago. 0 Replies

    Hi I was curious to know if anyone has purchased a Lunar / io bottle in the last 2 weeks?If you have could you please confirm the colour option you chose and have you noticed any sticking wax, staining on the inside of the glass or debris in the wax. I want to try re order some bottles but after several Yellow / Orange & Blue / Green bottles had the above issues I decided to return all  mine for a refund and wait until Mathmos sorted out the problem.Continue

    Phantom Flower fiber optic lamp does anyone know anything about them please?

    Started by Susan in Collecting. Last reply by Susan yesterday. 38 Replies

    Does anyone know anything about a Phantom Flower fiber optic lamp please? It's thought to date to 1969/early 70's. There's a name beginning with "A" but it's so small we cannot read it. It looks very similar to the Crestworth Galaxy, but there's obvious differences. Although the flowers look exactly like flowers found in one of the Crestworth fiber lamps. It lights up and changes colours as it rotates. I need to put a 20w bulb in as per the label, just waiting for them to arrive. We've wanted…Continue

    Crestworth Snowflake

    Started by Glitterbug in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Simon Lloyd yesterday. 10 Replies

    Hi all,I bought a Crestworth Snowflake fiber optic lamp on eBay, but I think I got scammed.The light is very dim and the color effects/changes are very underwhelming and kind of strange, so I decided to open the lamp to take a look inside, and I have a few questions:1. It has a 12v 20W bulb. Is this the correct one for this model, or does it need higher wattage?2. The fiber optic spray is not held together by a metal piece as you would expect in a lamp of this quality,  but by white plastic…Continue
