"Andy, what's the story on the Crestworth with a tilted, smoked bowl containing an enormous, five-petal flower? That's the one I love... and will never have. Seems to use the Phantomlite base mounted in a C-shaped yoke atop a Nordic base…"

"I believe the three Crestworth flower designs had names, but I don't recall them offhand. Are these  all of them, and which is which?"
Jonas Clark-Elliott replied to Susan's discussion Phantom Flower fiber optic lamp does anyone know anything about them please?
"Yes, Susan, Andy, your flowers are made the same way as the cheap music box ones, they're just more artistically-shaped. The material is a flat sheet made of plastic fibers, which was then cut into the required widths, wrapped and glued. I…"
Jonas Clark-Elliott replied to Susan's discussion Phantom Flower fiber optic lamp does anyone know anything about them please?
"I don't *think* it's that old, but I'm not sure. Fiber optic lamps with plastic fibers were being made in at least the early 1970s, but I haven't seen flower lamps newer than the late 70s (the Crestworth ones). All I've seen…"

Something Interesting About Me:
Lava lamps are only a fraction of my collecting hobbies. My others are no less unusual, and likeky more so, including but not limited to smoking pipes, Geissler tubes and other scientific glassware, clocks, door chimes, rain lamps, fiber optic lamps, vintage lighting fixtures, tiki torches, and vintage ceiling fans. I tend to have a poor short-term memory at times, so if we agree to a sale or trade, email and badger me frequently or I will forget quickly. My email address is KitDaKat@aol.com.

Hi Jonas. You are one of the most knowledgable people on this site and a great contributor through all the ups and downs and changes in 'personnel' this site has experienced. I recently picked a lovely white crackle effect Italian rain lamp at a boot fair for a steal of 10 of our British pounds!

Hey Jonas,I saw your page on oil rain lamps,I am very impressed on how much you know about them. It says in your bio you really dont collect them as much anymore. May i ask you why you stopped collecting them and how many you ended collecting?. Do you think the value will keep going up on these?. Thanks again Steampunk Steele

Thank you for the comments.  I had to laugh when I first took the Laff light apart because instead of that thin black and transparent inner sheet of plastic, it had a stapled cardboard cutout.

Jonas - check your PM - you now have editing rights in the Lava Library. I can set up some pages for you, if you want! :)

Thats exactly what it is, it didn't come with a bulb so I have to track one down, but its pretty cool looking. I've seen other pics in google light up and its wicked looking.
