De magnifiques lampes à paillettes vintage du monde entier qui vous emmèneront en voyage.

Cette page fait office de galerie dédiée aux lampes à paillettes vintage mais aussi à une ou deux autres somptueuses lampes incluant les lampes Boiler et bien d'autres pièces de la même époque. La plupart de ces lampes sont continentales, certaines viennent d'URSS mais aussi quelques Crestworth & Mathmos Anglaises rejoignent la collection. L'on peut même trouver quelques modèles Américains ça et là. Il s'agit juste d'un petit mélange éclectique de formes et de couleurs.

Crestworth Glitterlite & Living Jewel Lamps & History.

Crestworth Ltd in Poole UK, were the inventors of the lava lamp originally known as the Astro Lamp, which is still sold today (please see images above!). Crestworth was founded by Edward Craven Walker, and also introduced a range of glitter lamps in various designs and different formulations.

1. Crestworth's Glitterlite offered slow shimmering small glitter that shines in beautiful liquid to create the effect of a disco in a bottle.

Known Glitterlite Colours include: Ruby (Red), Emerald (Emerald-Green), Sapphire (Night Sky) & Amber (Autumn Leaves).

2. Crestworth's Living Jewel offered fast moving larger pieces of silver glitter that creates a show of fast moving glitter flakes.

The Cosmos | An export only model introduced by the legendary Crestworth Ltd company based in Poole, who were the sole inventors of the Astro Lamp. This lamp has been seen with lava but this time we see it with Crestworth's Glitterlite formula. Slow, safe moving glitter in a bottle. I love the regal elegance of the base and the way it raises the bottle.

Below: Vintage British "Sparkle-lite" Tinsel Glitter Lamp | These vintage British lamps as seen below were produced in the UK, and are commonly known as: "Hunter" lamps. The company behind these lamps also produced lava variations but also created a beautiful glitter version featuring fast moving liquid and large pieces of tinsel styled glitter. The effect is dazzling to the eye.

Below: Mathmos Jet | In the 1990s, Glitter came back with Mathmos with a Glitter option being offered in their Jet lamps. These lamps are stunning.

Below: Mathmos Glitterbaby 1990s Vintage | In the 1990s, Glitter came back with Mathmos in a very big way after the Glitter Jets with a sister product to the Astrobaby, known as Glitter Baby. Glitter Baby was also sold in the Telstar rocket format. Below one can see a press image for a beautiful dazzling Glitterbaby. These lamps are stunning.
