Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Hi fellow gooers,

Did anyone else see the recent eBay auction for the really early copper Crestworth Astro? This example was exceptionally early and featured the Mk1 open two-piece base which was painited inside and the very earliest in-line switch. The odd thing apart from the completely ancient and shot original liquid was the very shallow copper cap, much more shallow than even the Mk 1 Astro. Any Crestworth experts on here know about this lamp. It went for a whopping £310 at the auction end. Maybe this exact model was a pre-production model with that very unusual cap. Did anyone here win it?

As a serious collector I don't think the price is worth it.  You can never get the top off so you're stuck with an old crusty lamp that you cannot even enjoy.  What a serious waste of cash in my opinion. I'd rather save for a lamp that was in better condition or another lamp I can enjoy or re-goo if needed.  PASSSSSS.

my original astro mk 0   all original   i had to drive 300 miles to collect  all original probably one of the best examples around 

Nice piece of lava history you have there.

finding one with the original fill - that's special
