Presenting a Beautiful Brass Aladdin Model 6 Mantel Lamp 1915-16 over 100 years old in very nice condition per photos. There are a few small dents and is unpolished, missing a Model 6 wick, air distributor screen, and generator/spreader.Listing is for lamp only and its parts shown in the photos. See last photo showing parts list and 1915 newspaper ad. The Aladdin model 6 lamp may well be the most famous model of them all and is the only model to have dated wick adjuster knobs. In 1915 the Aladdin model 6 lamp won a gold medal and a blue ribbon at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco.
I suspect the date was added to let customers know that this was the model that was judged to be the best in the world. The first model six lamps had insulated burners with no dates. After the prize was won, the date was hurried into production by stamping the date on the wick adjuster knob.Later the wick adjuster stamp mold was modified to include the date. Then starting 1917 through 1920 undated uninsulated model 6 burners were built for the Canadian market. Aladdin applied for a patent on this burner on 28 Aug 1914. The patent was filed on 19 Feb, 1918 after sales of the model 6 had ceased (patent 1256879). Model 6 wicks and flame spreaders were kept in production through 1954 as replacement parts for the model 3 through 6 lamps.
