Sometimes you come across something and you know you have to be a part of it all, and you begin to collect on the cusp of something new. And so it was that I collect Russian Space Memorabilia when it is a rather new field and not much is known or not much is really known about what exists out there.

Apparently the rocket lamp is a rare item, or so it has been stated. Apparently all are rare and little is really offered for sale, I imagine since these pieces were only given to members of the space program, scientists, astronauts, that they were only sold because of the little money any of these people were paid. Even today the Russian space station has little impact and importance, in terms of pay, although costing other countries millions of dollars also.

The third item personifies the cosmonauts out there in space as a rocket shoots out there to explore, the two CCCP astronauts are floating, drifting sideways, surrounded by the constellations, planets, and stars.

As of 2012 I now have 2 of the second item, one is pictured and also with a yellow cord, and the other model I have is all gold or brass washed metal and with a useful on-off switch !

    Wow, I just love these. I actually visited the Space Museum in Moscow and the whole place looked like this. I wanted to put the whole place in my suitcase.

    Thanks ar8Jason and Amber Rose for the love. You were really lucky to have seen their museum Amber Rose, I wish I had seen it, although I would have been trying to negotiate the sale of some items for sure had I gone. I was lucky to have 2 agents as go betweens on the sale of my items but have not seen anything for sale in the last year or so or else, when I did, the few pieces I wanted were quite expensive.
