None of the imperfections really effect the lamp's appeal. 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.
Not sure if metal shade holder is newer or not. We really only dusted this off. The brass portion has really nice original bright finish and we did not attempt to clean as many of these came with 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 no wick in burner and it did not have a chimney when we obtained.The riser wheel on burner seems a bit loose but the meshed gears which would engage the wick seem to operate 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.
