An original 1970's colour changing fibre optic lamp from the makers of the original Lava Lamp, Crestworth. In good working condition. The lamp is with its original bulb and fan which both work but a lot of owners of these lamps like to disable the fan and replace the original bulb with an LED.

The lamp is generally in good condition but there are a couple of small scratches on the acrylic dome and I think that the dome may have separated from the base that holds the fibres and glued back on as you can see some glue but it isn't very noticeable unless closely examined.

Crestworth (now known as Mathmos today) are world renowned for being the inventor of the Astro lamp, the world's first lava lamp. A British inventor, Donald Dunnett believed that if time could be measured with sand in an egg timer, that the same could be achieved with liquid and set out to create an object that was patented as a display device. Today his invention is often invisible, but it was the seed of the idea that would inspire Edward Craven Walker to develop the Astro lamp. Edward Craven Walker imagined a new form of lighting that would present two interactive liquids that would capture the imagination of the people of the 1960s and the 1970s. The lamp became a worldwide success and is widely regarded as an icon that is a definition of the ethos of its time. This colourful flowing bubbling lamp has been presented in endless colour combinations over the decades such as Ruby-Rose, Violet-Orange and Blue-Blue over the years, to name just a few.

As Crestworth grew as a company, it continued to change the world of lighting and the way people perceive lighting with new designs and technology with Glitterlite, Aromalite, Twiggy and many other lighting technologies. Crestworth moved into a range of fibre optic lights to create some of the most people designs in fibre optic technology. At www.fiberopticmuseum.com, we will focus on the following Crestworth models: Galaxy, Phantomlite (Super Phantom via a supplementary base), Crystalite and Snowflake. In the 1990s, Mathmos went on to create a selection of fibre optic designs such as: Jupiter 2, Starburst and Fibre Space.
