This wonderful vintage USA Pagoda lamp was recently uncovered by Dietrich who emailed into www.lavalamptimeline.com. This particular design was produced by the Pagoda Lamp Co., a division of Heat Tapes, who produced these wonderful glitter lamps.

These particular lamps feature beautiful glitter pieces in various colours as listed on the front of the box.
Gold, Red, Blue, Green, Orange & Chartreuse (a colour that is between yellow and green). These particular lamps are very rarely seen in such a great condition and are a wonderful example of the vintage lamps produced. The cap of the bottle features a wonderful metal hat styled cap and the lamp is slightly oriental in its theme with a Pagoda inspiration. This gives the lamp character. The bottle has a slight taper and is held on a beautifully produced base featuring an integrated switch. These lamps are rarely seen in this great condition.

Many thanks to Dietrich for these wonderful images below. The model below is the blue version and was found in his Aunt's storage room.

One of the most interesting aspects of the history of the lava lamp was that there were tonnes of different manufacturers of lava and glitter lamps. In Continental Europe there were tonnes of different designs produced by local manufacturers. Enjoy the images that show glitter lamps from all over the world. We particularly love the glitter lamp which has a spherical glass section of glitter. One particular characteristic of French glitter lamps is their "window" design. These "window" glitter lamps feature cutouts in the metal sections which display the glitter, shimmering inside the bottle.
