Yep, there's a silver Starship Grande, minus cap, in my local Goodwill, which is Renton, WA. They want $70 for it. Globe is cloudy yellow/blue. Are these indeed hyper-rare? Does anybody want it? I could pick it up for someone. Photos linked below.
If I did get it, I'd have to go Sunday, hopefully it'd still be there.
That's cool! I'm in Seattle. I might go down there tomorrow and have a look. Thanks much for the heads-up! I love the old starships, never seen a grande before.
I thought those were prototypes and not released? Someone go snag that!
Rare find, Jonas. I'd pick it up for sure. I agree with Bill, though. Too bad the cap is missing.
if you pick it up and don't want it, i am interested in taking just the base if you want the globe. i am VERY partial to starships. can work out details via PM if interested.
Because I don't have $70 to spare and I have absolutely nowhere I can put it. If someone wants me to buy it, PM me or, better yet, email at jcefoundit@gmail. But I'm not going to buy it and sit on it, because I have no room to even store it.
Good luck in picking it up, Brian.
Since these were prototypes and never mass produced, chances are slim to none that you'll find a cap. Due to the rarity, I'd probably explore getting a cap custom made for it. You could also ask Susan at LL if they have one laying around -- kinda' doubt it, though.
I hope you get it, Brian! Needs a new globe. It's the most unusual lamp I've ever found in a thrift store. If it was $40 or so, I would have bought it.
By the way, Brian, if you're in Seattle... would you ever kit a lamp for someone else if they pay for materials and time? I'm over in Renton, and I suck at chemistry if it doesn't involve booze.
