Hello all sorry if I’m coming into this thread kind of late, we have been collecting all kinds of vintage resin swag lamps for years.
Sven may remember, but wasn’t there a guide (for the resin lights) floating around 10-12 (?) years ago? I think Dug first showed it to me and I had some Japanese customers show up with one but haven’t seen it since. Does anyone here have a copy, it was a B+W type deal not very professionally produced, but there were some manufactures names, a picture of the lamp, etc… It really fueled my interest in finding more pieces.

I suspect most of the lamps (pictured) were professionally made because the home made jobs really stick out.



First off as you see they were popular enough an item to buy at Sears also you’ll see some of the designs (from earlier in the thread) in question.






A few of ours below, sorry for the poor quality I just shot them quickly otherwise I would never have gotten around to posting.

First is the ultra cool space age shape obviously professionally made.





Next home made crazy, you can’t see but it has huge bubbles and all kinds of
shapes floating in the panels.






Next the three on top are manufactured (it would have been something to see them spin the liquid resin on the back lamps) the bottom is someone’s project.






Thanks for looking,

My very best alohas,

Bosko

I LOVE resin lamps. I have a few hangin around the house. Always looking for more on ebay, but sometimes they do get expensive.

Hey TIKIDAVId, I was not knocking you, but it seems that you confuse easily.
I called you out at the beginning of this tread because I felt you were playing games, You responded very rudely, very un-Tiki Central, I backed out and tried to make nice to keep the peace but with cracks like this, and others, you wont back off.
Dude, chill.

I like these lamps. They are like clunky dilithium crystals.

Here is a spaghetti/chunk combo lamp I bought at a yard sale about 18 years ago when I was coincidentally 18.
It still has this really great green art glass light bulb my (then) girlfriend gave me.




I finally rewired it a couplah years ago as it had a faulty cord.

Aloha!

Since there isn't anything for sale and this has become more of a collector, show and tell thread, how about moving this to collecting tiki or beyond tiki? Moderators?

Opps sorry.

Na I was broke but I knew some one on here would dig it.

I got so much stuff now and not one more open wall socket.

Cool if some one from TC got it.

I just love seeing these lamps.

I will stumble across one for myself when the lord thinks I should. That is the way it always is for me.
