Estate Sales News celebrates the Lava Lamp 50 years old yesterday

Tuesday marked the 50th anniversary of the Lava Lamp. These lamps which are sought after at estate sales have a history. We hope you enjoy the video provided by Triwood 1973.

They were invented by an Englishman Edward Craven-Walker who according to an article on NEWSMAX “was inspired by an odd-looking liquid-filled egg timer in a Pub in southwest Britain”.

This was the beginning of the era of psychedelics and the “Love Generation”. They came into popularity along with the Beatles and the funky looks that followed.
