Do you remember Rain Lamps??? If so HELP PLEASE!
« on: 17/07/2007 06:28:03 »
 OK! Does anyone Know what a Rain Lamp is besides me??? I have one which is very old and has a nice naked women in it, standing amongst the ferns etc, as if showering in the rain.. I am getting ready to refinish the outer parts of my rain lamp as it has rusted from hanging outside. I will need to clean and refill my Rain Lamp.. My memory is lagging and I believe I used to fill it with mineral oil... I hope that is correct if someone knows otherwise please be kind enough to let me know? LOL

Please feel free to share a picture of your Rain Lamp if you still have one!

It is quite lovely... HEE HEE My husband hates it.. but who cares.. You pour the mineral oil into the bottom and plug it in. The pump, pumps it up and heats the mineral oil and it then drizzles down these delicately spaced cords which in turn look as if it is raining all around her. It is lovely, cheesy, but I like it! LOL


Hey Yes, how did you get my lamp? LOL I think that is even the same women! LOL

Wow it looks cool ... I can't wait to make mine pretty again! LOL!

What we do have is what i can only describe as a "rain harp". It's a sculpture of a harp (!) but where the strings use the same principle as your lamp. It looks fabulous in the winter, because the water freezes on the strings.

I have not figured out how to replace the light bulb.. it won't fit through the wires I also would like to clean all the ferns and the pretty lady!


A rain Harp...ohhhh you should post a picture soon.. I would like to see one.. That would be beautiful! Does yours uses water instead of mineral oil?

Pictures will be good. Does yours sit on a table or hang? Wait, you mean this is a big sculpture? Is this in town? I bet it is gorgeous!

Just to let you know, I sell the recommended Drakeol # 35 rain lamp fluid in my shop in Medford, Oregon. I buy in bulk from a supplier on the east coast and bottle and label myself. Check out ***************** for more info.

I love these lamps and have restored a few.

I miss the 70's
