Night of the Hunter

This is a group for those who have an interest in the so-called Hunter lava lamps named after their founder, Mr John Edward Hunter who attempted a patent on his Sata-Lite model in c. 1970. Later version was called the Sparkle-Lite using glittery strands in the liquid. They came in various designs but more or less one size and with only one bottle type but numerous colour combos in both wax and sparkly strands to glitter.

Rarely seen if somewhat Tatty box to the 'Hunter' Sparkle Lite (I normally hyphenate the Sparkle and the Lite as in Sata-Lite.)

Indeed. The only thing I've uncovered so far as that the registered design number dates to June 1970.

I shall keep looking and see what I can find. 

You've done incredibly well with your boxed Hunters. Can't wait too see the Sparkle-Lite!
