This is a matching pair of Aladdin Orientale lamps, each with Nu-Type B burners, circa 1935-36. See photos and description for details. Matching Pair of Scarce Aladdin Model B Orientale Lamps, with Burners. THIS IS A GUARANTEED GENUINE MATCHING PAIR OF ANTIQUE ALADDIN KEROSENE LAMPS, CIRCA 1935-36.
They are the Orientale Model B, which is scarce and was made only parts of two years. It is infrequent that a single such lamp in this good of a condition comes on the market, yet I have a matching pair to offer! The bases are silver colored (the paint appears to be recent) and the fonts are brass. The pedestal on one has some minor pitting (see photos).Both have Nu-Type Model B burners, one of which is missing its flame spreader. I filled both fonts with water, and there were no leaks.
However, I cannot guarantee them for kerosene, as the viscosity is different. Each lamp stands approximately 10 inches tall to the top of the collar.
No dents, cracks, or breaks. If you collect Aladdin lamps, this is an opportunity that may not come around again anytime soon.
I have been going to auctions for many of my 67 years, and these are the first ones I have come across. They are worthy of a good collection! I'm not smart enough to tell anyone what will and won't appreciate in value, but I do know that.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever. OK, not literally forever, because none of us will be around on earth that long, so we should store up treasure in heaven (Matthew 6: 19-20). But while doing that, consider what things of beauty we can afford to have around in the here and now, things that we can be stewards of for a time, and then have the joy of passing on to someone else.
