||model: The Squiggle Aristocrat (black)
manufacturer: Lava Manufacturing Corporation
first production: 60s
comments: The Aristocrat model which you see here
is especially interesting because the base and cap are painted with
a popular paint technique from the 1960s: squiggle!
Isn't this beautiful! The black/gold squiggle shown here is much, much more rare than the
white/gold squiggle, and therefore much more desirable. But if you ask me (and I know you would),
it's better looking too.
I've been told (thanks Jonas Goo) that there's a black/black squiggle Aristocat too. That's right, black on black, so you
just get the squiggle texture - cool.
