"Hi Angel. I would say the better quality lamps tend to be made by Mathmos (early 90’s to present day) and under their previous guise as ‘Crestworth’ (1960’s to early 90’s) as well as the earlier Lava Lite models between…"

Mathmos Factory visit pt 2

Wow! Almost 10 years to the day since our last visit, this time to their premises on an industrial estate, unit 2 at Poole in sunny Dorset. We were lucky enough to go to the original Sterte Avenue West premises back in September 2009.

Once again I must say, the staff there were most accommodating and friendly. Took some pics of their amazing lava lamp line up including Astros, Telstar and Neos both table and wall varieties and enjoyed looking at the whole range including Space…

Mathmos, Poole, England

Gosh, is it really only a week since my trip to sunny Dorset and to the Mathmos factory in Poole? The folks we met there were really nice and friendly and even let us look around the place including where they fill the bottles!

I spotted a nice boxed Faze 2 lamp there but alas it was not for sale.

It was nice to see the permanent display of current products and my friend Paul and I even made a couple of purchases, Paul a nice replacement Astro bottle in Violet/Orange and I… Continue

thank you so much for the kind comment! I've actually got a Black and White Ribcage Lava Lamp from Spencers i still gotta unbox and set up (i totally underestimated the size of the shelf I bought at 5 below so i have to get a bigger one before I worry about setup unfortunately @__@) and from there I plan on getting a few more whenever I can afford them! On the topic, do you have any advice on where to find good quality lamps, especially on the more affordable side?

Hey there,

How ya been? Not 2031 like you mentioned but do feel bad for my lack of replys over the years. Please forgive the time that has gone by since you have written. Life seems to go by so quickly. I have not bought any lamps in years, have sold quite a few about 4 years ago when I loved and have kind of lost touch of values. I have since moved again and have transported some great lamps down to Arizona. Don't have a lot of room to display them correctly so might consider selling some lamps that have been packed away. At any rate, what has been going on with you?

Thank you,  I'm not "Mr" forums and Facebook so this is all quite new to me.

I am a lover of lava lamps though and I've found a lot on here very informative. 

So addictive,  bought a mathmos neo and telstar this week already on evilbay. 

Just need to catch the postman before the missis does "Wah ha ha ha" .

Hi Modulo'70

What would you like to know about it? It has clouded up quiet a lot over the years and the glitter has become translucent. I was hoping to resurrect it to its former glory. I contacted the company in the south near me but they said that they don't have that shape bottle or do repairs. 

I saw a person had said that they had repaired a lava lamp on eBay. So contacted him he roughly told me how to do it and suggested this website might help.
