We’re all fed up with hearing about Jubilee and Olympics products that are made abroad and not benefiting the UK economy. So over the next couple of weeks we will be searching these Isles for those Jubilee gifts that are actually made in Britain.

To kick off our Jubilee fortnight on Make it British we bring you the Jubilee Astro lamp by Mathmos – continue reading to find out how you could win it!

It was Mathmos founder Edward Craven Walker who invented the lava lamp, and it has been in continuous production in the UK since 1963. This video, made by Mathmos, shows the light being made in their Dorset factory, just as it has been for the last 49 years. Enjoy the video, and then simply answer the question below to be in with a chance of winning the Jubilee Astro lava lamp. Good luck, and happy Jubilee!

    About the value of a locally-made Mathmos compared to another lava lamp from another side of the world.

    Mathmos.com offer free delivery on replacement filled bottles @ £23.95. The bottle is also UK-made so there may be other ways of getting one and filling it in a DIY way, but I don’t know.

    Ebay sellers often offer the rest of the lamp for next to nothing, particularly if you set ebay to tell you about low-price sales within 5 miles, and you collect. So, patience can get you a lamp for £25-£30.

    Ebay sellers also advertise complete lamps, so the same search will probably get you a lamp for under £20. Recent previous sale prices for used lamps are here: http://bit.ly/KP6tqd

    Lamps from the other side of the world sell for £16-£20 in mainstream shops and much less in pound shops or on ebay. They are probably slower to sell on ebay because the buyer can’t tell so easily what they are getting. So if you don’t win the competition, why not buy and sell UK-made Mathmos lamps second hand? If you don’t drop yours and you enjoy the process of buying and selling, it’s no more expensive than buying Chinese.
