Neat Aladdin lamp, but has some tarnish to brass finish and some small blemishes to font and general wear to burner and other (see pictures). The lamp shade looks very nice but does have a hairline crack as shown in pictures. It is not overly noticeable unless you are close up.There is a small chip where crack begins and minor flea bites on lower edge, but the rest looks very nice. None of the imperfections really effect the lamp's overall appeal. Just has the patina'd brass look, which is kind of neat with the frosted white glass shade.
We are discounting price for patina on brass and hairline crack on shade. These were only offered for a few years as styles were starting to move away from Art Nouveau around this time and these were fairly expensive to produce. We really only dusted the lamp and parts off. The brass portion could be cleaned for a brighter look, but we choose to sell most items as we get them and so we did not attempt to clean in any way. Also, many of these came with a finish coating to the brass and we did not want to mess with the lamp as it looks so good as it is.
There is a wick in the burner, but it did not have a chimney when we obtained. The riser wheel on burner seems to work as designed from what we can tell. If you search our store you can search "Lamps" under our store categories and see some of the others.
We obtained some rare and very nice lamps. We relied on the previous owner's provided information to identify the lamp and some general research of our own. We do our very best to describe items as we see them, but we are not perfect, nor are we Aladdin experts.Please look over all pictures and zoom if needed. There may be some other minor blemishes or production blips, but we took pictures of every side of lamp and shade.
