The lamp consists of a standard bulb when turned on heats the tall transparent bottle containing small amount water and a mixture of wax. Although other things can also be added such as carbon tetrachloride but the standard lava lamp must have water and wax in the transparent bottle. The wax is not that thick but a little dense as compared with water at room temperature but gets even less dense under warm temperatures as it is more expandable and elastic than water when heated together.
More and more people are learning to appreciate the quality and styling of antique floor lamps especially as most of the ones being produced today are molded plastic and literally made to be thrown away. Most all floor lamp makers from the turn of the century made their lamps from heavy metals such as cast iron, brass, steel and cast zinc sometimes combined with marble, onyx, glass and stone. Our lamp shop regularly restores these antique floor lamps for resale as well as for our customers’ own use. From our 30 years of experience it is clear that many of these antique floor lamps will last for hundreds of years. You will find some other surprises about these collectible works of art below.
