Thank You for that photo Bohdan .
The Impereial has a nice shape to it also the sheer size of it will grab ones attention without fail.
I wonder how long it would take to warm it up to get a nice flow going?
Vintage lava lamps really peak my intrest.
Yeah, I would make a trip out of picking one up. Enjoy the local sites and what not. I would DEFINITELY not trust shipping. No matter how good someone can pack. The sheer size and weight alone would be terrible.
Thanks Bohdan I just never knew what Kind of wax is used in these lamps.
Also I was told that they should never be opened.
Opening them also causes air to get inside causing a adverse reaction to the contents resulting in a cloudy apperance.
Actually Vix, the trip was made with me. I emailed Weebs (during the auction) and told him that my highest bid was $1,200 and I was not going to go any higher therefore I would not be competing against him (those days, ebay had peoples' ID on the bids, and I found his pedigree.) He bought it, I picked him up and we drove to Philly to grab it. We became instant friends. Do I regret it? Sometimes, however, it was a hard sell to the Mrs. And Weebs really wanted it. Now, I would pay up to $1,500 or better for one. I am in a better financial place now then I was 3 years ago. Weebs sold it (after I declined to buy it from him) several years later to another member of this group. It is in good hands.
