Alpha Art Glass (Craft) #1230A. Model # 12 Burner w/Wick. Lamp & Burner 14.5" High x 6.5" Wide. Circa: 1934-35, 6 Footed Base.Rare and lovely find from a selective Aladdin Lamp Collector's treasure trove. This is a Green Alpha Art Glass #1230A, Model #12 Burner Lamp (Vase Style). We also found these id'ed as Art Craft. There is much more available information from the Aladdin Lamps info website on dates of production, models, etc.
We are going with collector's description as he was far more knowledgeable than us having owned hundreds of Aladdin lamps. Includes a Vintage Aladdin Improved Lox On Chimney, Nice #12 Burner with wick and flame spreader. We only dusted off the lamp. There is no fuel in lamp.
The lamp is in very good condition, see other comments below. These lamps have a rich luster as they were painted inside, allowing the exterior glass to enhance color and protect the paint. The darker rim on base is painted on surface giving a nice contrast. We photographed from all sides. The vase area is in really nice shape, but it does have a small chip and flea bite on the bottom rim as pictured.
They do not really effect the appeal of lamp. There is a tiny flea bite chip on top rim, but not visible when font is in place. As usual on these lamps, there are a few paint flake offs along upper rim from font ins and outs we suppose. They are somewhat visible from exterior if you look closely at our pictures. We shot with and without flash as the green looks a little different in different lighting.
There is a production paint glaze variation on lower lamp base (see last two pictures in gallery) visible from inside and lesser so from out, but wanted to note it. Overall, this is in excellent shape other than small flaws as noted. 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.
