We are going with collector's description as he was far more knowledgeable than us having owned several hundred of these lamps. We did verify information through price guides and other available Aladdin info sites. We only gently cleaned the lamp. There is no fuel in lamp. The lamp is in excellent condition with no notable defects we could find.
The bracket does have wear and some finish loss, but maintains a decent look. We photographed with and without flash as the glass looks a little different in different lighting.
There could be other tiny blemishes or production blips, but they would be minimal as we look over items thoroughly. Please look over all pictures and use zoom if needed. We do our best to describe in detail what we see and are painstaking in our packing. In over 1000 delicate item sales we have had only two items sustain damage and both were out of US sales.
