Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Hi,

I found a pair of what I think are Fantasia glitters at an antique mall this weekend. They look like ones I have seen here but they do not have a color wheel and the lids don't want to come off. They are 16" tall x 3" dia. and the bases are about 5" dia. They have a green felt and a blue UL Portable Lamp sticker on the bottom.

My questions are what are they, make and model? What bulbs should they have, both have cylinder shaped bulbs with a rounded top about 1" long. One has a 15w and one has a 25w. How do the lids come off, are they screwed on or glued? Someone might have glued the lids on.

The pic doesn't do them justice they are a beautiful silver color not as yellow as the pic looks. Thanks.

wow..they are so pretty!...lucky ducky ;)

They are made by Fantasia. I don't know that they had a specific name. They are somewhat rare and worth some bucks. Mine, when I had it, the lid didn't come off either. Could've been stuck on there from time or just not meant to come off. I'm not sure. 

I've had several of these. They're definately made by Fantasia and are from the late 70's/early 80's. Not sure if there was a model name for them. The lids are glued on. Because they are filled with the old fast perc formula, they really don't need that much heat to flow. I wouldn't use more than 25 watts on these and will work with as little as 15 watts.
