This is a terrific Aladdin White Moonstone Queen B-96 design, Nu-Type B Nickle Burner, Carriage & Flame Spreader, Aladdin Lox On Chimney. There is much more information available from the Aladdin Lamps info websites on dates of production, models, etc. We are going with collector's description as he knew far more than we do, having owned many hundreds of Aladdin Lamps (and we verified what we could with the Aladdin Collectors Guide books & sites).
We only gently cleaned the lamp. There is no fuel in lamp. The lamp is in really nice condition with the glass font almost mint.
The silver tone finish base looks very nice, far nicer than any Queen's we have seen. We believe the finish is original, but you can judge by photos yourself. If it was a repaint, it looks terrific. It is not as shiny as some silver based ones we have seen, but so many have been repainted, we are not sure what the originals looked like. It has a great antique look with an Art Deco flair.
They made this lamp for three years, 1937-39. We photographed from all sides. The lamp is in really nice shape and glass really looks mint or very close to it.The font fits well into base and is firmly set. We did not separate the base and font as we feel this may not be proper for the antique lamp. We photographed with and without flash as the White Moonstone color and metal base look a little different in different lighting. It actually seems brighter without the flash. The burner is included and appears to be in good shape.
The flame spreader is in place as well. 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.
