This is a very beautiful piece of history. The Aladdin Company has an amazing story. There is a very small Chip on the bottom of Shade.
The rest of the lamp is amazing. Please see pictures for details. Alacite glass was the creation of Henry Hellmers and in his words was described as, an ivory opal glass. " It was described in Aladdin advertising material as, "A startlingly beautiful lamp base, and pedestal material, which resembles many of the semiprecious mineralites in texture, and has much of the softness and tone of tusk (genuine ivory)-the only color in which it is available.
All ivory glass in not Alacite, nor was it made by Aladdin. Many other companies manufactured items in a glass that very closely resembled Alacite.
Most, but not all, Alacite made by Aladdin was marked with the name Aladdin or with an A in the glass. Several Aladdin lamps and founts were made of Alacite and are still favorites of many collectors. Thank you for your understanding.
