#616 S Painted Grist Mill Lamp Shade. Model #12 Nickel Font w/Wick & 3 Line Aladdin.
12.5" x 9" Scenic Shade. Awesome find from a selective Aladdin Lamp Collector's treasure trove. Great Aladdin Model #12, 4 Post Hanging Lamp with #616 S (Scenic) Painted Shade. #12 Nickel Font, 3 Line Aladdin Chimney with wick & carriage but no flame spreader. The owner also had marked it as "DD", but we are not sure what that means.
There is much more information available from the Aladdin Lamps info website on dates of production, models, etc. We are going with collector's description as he owned many hundreds of Aladdin Lamp, and knew lamps far better than we do.
We also verified information as best we could using Aladdin collector guides and online websites. We only dusted off the lamp and shade.
There is no fuel in lamp. It could use a cleaning as we only dusted it off. There are a few dark marks on inside of the shade but they are fairly small. We could not see any cracks, chips or dings of note.
Please look over pictures we took of top and bottom edge. There is some paint loss from wear on upper edge where shade meets holder and some rust transfer at top edge from bracket holder. There are a few minor surface scratches, but they do not really effect the item's appeal.The font and chimney are also very nice. The font has a few minor dings but they are not very noticeable. The hanging 4 post bracket does have some wear and discoloration and rust from coating loss, but is very solid. We photographed all parts of lamp and from all sides we could. There could be other tiny production blemishes or blips, but they would be minimal as we look over items thoroughly. Please look over all pictures and use zoom if needed.

In this case we will wrap and box shade within a box, then place in larger box, the same with glass chimney.
