Lovely find from a selective Aladdin Lamp Collector's treasure trove. This is an very nice Aladdin #12 Art Craft Venetian Peach Straw #1245 Vase Style Lamp, Vintage Aladdin Chimney, Exceptional #12 Burner, Wick & Flame Spreader are included. There is much more information available from the Aladdin Lamps info websites on dates of production, models, etc.We are going with much of collector's description as he knew far more than we do, having owned many hundreds of Aladdin Lamps (and we verified as best we could with the Aladdin Collector's Guide books & info sites). We only gently dusted off the lamp. There is no fuel in lamp. The vase portion of lamp is in really nice condition. There are some flea bites on lower edge (as pictured), but no other notable chips or dings.
There is what appears to be a production some production variations in color as is normal and a few paint flecks on inside of upper rim where burner sits (as shown in photo gallery). The flecks are hardly noticeable with burner in place.
Wick raiser seems to work very well when turned. The burner is in excellent shape as is the font. We photographed from all sides. We photoed with and without flash as the colors look a little different in different lighting as you can see in pictures.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.
In over 1200 delicate item sales we have had only two items sustain damage and both were out of US sales. Font, Lamp, Chimney are all wrapped apart for protection, but mailed within same larger box.
One lamp customer just messaged us this, I received the lamp today, you did a great job packing the lamp, you could have sent it to mars with this packing.
