three coach lantern variations

mathmos coach lantern base, copper

model: The Coach Lantern 
manufacturer: Mathmos & Lava-Simplex 
first production: 70s (?) 
comments: This fine, fine lamp is perfect for you outdoor types. I know I've had some camping experiences where this mood enhancer would've been thoroughly enjoyed! purrrr... 
The nicest version has a copper finish and was made by Mathmos of England, the holder of the English or European patent. They call them "Astro Lamps®" and they call french fries "chips" and they call... 
Haggerty made the lantern also, but the finish is brass and, in my humble opinion, the quality of metal work inferior.

A big OozingGoo thanks goes to out to Jeff Goo for this wonderful pic (above) of his 3 Coach Lanterns in his lava lamp collection.
At left, notice the detail on the Mathmos base. The trim lines just below the globe, and the metal cap (presumably to add more pretend "oil" to your lantern) are at times missing from the Lava-Simplex versions.
