Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Mathmos made a bunch of different store displays for their lava lamps.  Were any store displays made for US lava lamps (other than the single clear plastic holder that Spencer Gifts had)?

I seen this didn't realize what it was! It was black right?
Hello All.........I bought the lava lamp shaped display on craigs list that you are referring to
pics pics pics lol
Yes I will definitley post some pictures as soon as I get it set up with the lamps that I want to display
There were two Spencers single lamp units. One is the bent acrylic type we all know. The other has a thick acrylic circular disk base, another smaller for the top with a hole cut for the lamp's cap, and one or two (I can't remember) black posts to connect them, with screw-on black ball finials. Unlike the bent sheet acrylic ones, which were sometimes sold, I don't think the other type usually were, and I did ask once.

In 1965, the first Lava Lite model in the US had an optional store display, a short base with two angled mirrors standing behind to show all sides of the lamp, and some lettering across the bottom front. These are likely rarer than even 1st year Lava Lites, of which I've never heard of any being found.
Interesting. I don't know if I ever saw that one.
Yep thats it... i just never realized what it was lol. They posted it several times on craigslist.
I picked up the stand and lamps this weekend along with a little history behind the stand.I purchased it from a company that builds retail store displays.Back in 2000,this company designed and built 500 of these displays for Spencers.They were shipped to the stores as a kit to be assembled at their final locations.I purchased the last remaining stand that sat in their office for a few years and then got moved into the basement.
Yes I got some great lamps with the stand.I have been a collector of one thing or aother over the years and this purchase by far is the best find that I have ever made.With the display I received 14 lamps,there are (4 lamps) blue liquid/yellow lava,(3) purple/yellow,(1) yellow /red,(1) clear/yellow,(2) red/white,(1) red/blue,(1) purple glitter wizard and (1) storm.Then the guy gave me a bonus,I received just the bottle from a giant and it's blue/white.
Thanks Baby
Would you, by chance, be willing to sell me the Purple Glitter Wizard? I am looking to replace the one i lost long ago, which was a gift from my mother. I'm not a collector, but I really want this lamp for sentimental reasons. Forgive me for asking to bluntly, but would you be interested in selling it at all? Thank you very much!
