    Hello everyone

    Hi everyone, I used to be a member on here many years ago but I sadly drifted away due to other commitments. Several changes of internet service providers and especially email provider, left me without the means to re-activate my old account, so starting again :)A bit about myself. I grew up with a Crestworth Astro lantern back in the 70's, the fascination for lava lamps never left me. Our Mum used to let my Brother and I run the lava lamp behind the settee (I know great way to distract your…Continue

    New iO Matt Silver and a first 100 Limited Edition Io.

    Started by Jezza in Collecting. Last reply by Jezza yesterday. 8 Replies

    The Matt silver io will be available before Christmas.Also a new version? First 100 will be available too. What does this mean? A different finish? A different design? I am hoping for a version without the sidebars. Or even a copper or black version. Mathmos usually release new colours with new lamps. So hopefully a new colour bottle too. I am hoping for blue pink as the new astro bottles are awesome. My coppers are waiting. Thank you Mathmos....Continue

    24 old lava lamp behavior

    Started by Clinton W Salvato in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Clinton W Salvato Nov 17. 16 Replies

    Hey guys, here is a  short video of my 24 year old lava lamp running.  I am posting this to find out if this is still normal behavior, or if the wax has started to degrade.  This happens after about 2 to 3 hours being on.  This is the one with the midnight base, and orange liquid white wax,https://youtu.be/rtZ_Hm45C04Continue

    For sale I have a set of Lava Lamo Skittles with the base. The base is fully working but the lava isnt flowing as well as it should so it would make a great restoration project to get it flowing like the 4th picture.Iv done some research and found them to be very rare. They originate from a company in Boston, USA called Waltham Lighting. I have contacted them and they said they were a product from the old management of the company and that they are amazed to see I own a set in the UK because…Continue

    Io farce

    Started by Jezza in Collecting. Last reply by Jezza Nov 17. 4 Replies

    So why cant Mathmos produce these lamps?Why are they taking peoples money without so much as a buy or  leave, keep them waiting for months on end. And why dont they keep them informed about what is happening? It seems a really bad way of trading to me and is the main reason why i will not buy one. What are your experiences with the io and your responses from Mathmos. Im just very curious as to this really bad way of trading. Thanks JContinue

    Century Problems: ALL of the wax floats

    Started by Austin Van Laar in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Mr MaGoo Nov 16. 10 Replies

    Hi! Recently I found a great vintage Lava Lite Century model, dated 1974. It has blue liquid with yellow wax and one serious flaw—all of the wax floats to the top and stays there. I know several lamps have the issue where some floats and some stays at the bottom, this one has zero wax at the bottom. The liquid is not cloudy at all, in fact it is clearer than any of my other vintage lamps. The wax was floating when I purchased it with kind of a disgusting granular looking appearance (but it was…Continue
