Welcome to www.trippyglitters.com | Vintage glitter lamps | A look at Vintage British Glitter Lamps
www.trippyglitters.com is a website that documents the history and styles of beautiful vintage glitter lamps from all over the world, that will take you on a trip. On this page we continue our look at British Glitter lamps from Crestworth Ltd, Sparkle-Lite designs, Mathmos & Glitterama.
Crestworth expanded their glitter lamp designs with their Living Jewel formulation which is almost exclusively seen in the Astro Nordic De Luxe lamp design. Living Jewel presents large silver squares of glitter shimmering very quickly in liquid. Whilst Living Jewel did feature colour liquid options, it is most often seen with clear liquid.
Another company who produced glitter and lava lamps in the UK manufactured the Sparkle-Lite and Sata-lite lamp designs. These Sparkle-Lite designs feature trademark shaped tinsel shaped glitter, these designs are fast moving and are unique in using tinsel shaped long strands of glitter.
In the 1990s Edward Craven Walker's Glitterama company based in Poole Dorset, produced beautiful glitter designs which famously shipped in two sizes, the larger utilising the Mathmos Lunar (whisky) bottle. These designs also known as The Living Jewel, were offered in silver finishes and beautiful anodised finishes such as an electric blue. A lot of collectors use Glitterama bottles in their Lunar designs and also Lunar bottles in their Glitterama designs, when they want to turn their Glitterama design into a lava lamp.
The 1990s saw Crestworth transition into Mathmos. Mathmos returned to glitter first, by producing their Jet lamp with a slow moving glitter formulation but with large pieces of sliver glitter.
Glitter returned with massive effect, with the later 1990s Mathmos Glitter Baby designs. Glitter Baby was also sold in the Mathmos Telstar design and advertised as an extra-bottle purchase to refresh or offer a new effect for your lamp.
