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

Does anyone know if there is another source for our lava. Magnatower has not come back on line yet and their phone number does not seem to be any good any more. This is really going to be a bummer if we cant get any more lava. ThanksContinue
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
I have had empty globes sitting around and noticed back in June that they would start accepting orders someday that month, but when that day came, the reopen date then became July 31st. I haven’t ever done a goo kit before so i’m pretty eager to tryContinue
Maybe it's just me but I don't like painted colors on the glass bottle - I'd rather see the actual colors inside.Specers has some neat lamps but a lot of them have painted bottles. This one, for example, would look really cool as a white lamp with white wax - if the rainbow paint could be stripped. Has anyone done this? Acetone? Paint stripper? Wire wool? Just guessing, as I don't…Continue
Hi guys, Looking for some help here. I bought a blue green lunar bottle along with my purchase, and after just 7 or 8 runs, the whole thing is going more and more cloudy. I am really careful with my lamps and bottles and I've followed all the rules, not over heating, not moving whilst hot or warm, and keeping out of sunlight. But each time i run it, it gets more cloudy. I've never experienced this from a new mathmos bottle before so any help would be most appreciated. And yes I've contacted…Continue
Hey all,Early 70s models switch to a solid, but seamed, base and a brass color which often fades to silver. From the late 70s onward, a brass finish was used that did not fade. Starting in the mid 90s, black and satin silver versions were produced.Considering purchasing a silver base Century 100 model and need some advice as this is a new hobby for me. The listing title is "Vintage Underwriters Laboratory, " with a silver base and top. In the Lava Library here it states that "Early 70s models…Continue
