(RARE) Aladdin GRAY ALACITE TALL Lincoln Drape Oil Lamp Complete w/ Shade. This is an original oil lamp made by the Aladdin Lamp Company, ready to put oil in and use! It was made sometime after1944 when the US Government banned all commercial use of Uranium Oxide in glass manufacturing, because of the development of atomic weapons during WW2. This is why we see some Alacite lamps with swirl-looking colors.
It is an ORIGINAL Tall Lincoln Drape in a GRAY ALACITE glass, with swirls of Black and White through-out. On the Reproductions the mold mark lines are not continuous from the foot up the stem to the font, this one HAS A CONTINUOUS MOLD MARK LINE! It is NOT a 2 piece lamp! The Oil Fill Collar and Cap are set nearly level on the new lamps, the top is tapered slightly with a pronounced rise in the glass at the oil fill of the original lamps. Meaning that it is an Original 1940's lamp.It has the V-Foot, 3 Oblong Toes, "A" on bottom and is 10¼ tall. It comes with an Aladdin Glass Shade with 4 Aladdin's Lamps highly embossed around the bottom and 11 straight lines between each lamp.
In the last 20 years of dealing with these lamps, I have never seen this shade before. Any ideas on this shade would be Greatly Appreciated! It also comes with a NU-TYPE Model B Aladdin burner Chicago, Ill. This is a WORKING KEROSENE LAMP, the font holds oil, the font cap unscrews easily, the burner unscrews easily, the wick riser turns and the wick goes up and down easily.
The wick is already in it and it looks like it is New. This lamp is in excellent condition, no chips, cracks or fleabites. The shade is in Great condition but there are a few flea bites on the bottom fitter edge.I took pictures of all four sides so you could get a good look at it. I also took all of the pictures on 2 different colored backgrounds because the gray color of the lamp was too much the same color as the lighter background cloth.
The total height of this wonderful lamp is approx= 25¼ tall. The Lamp is=10¼ tall to the base of the collar. " tall X 10½" wide with a 9? The LOX-ON Chimney is= 12½ tall with a 2?This lamp would be an excellent addition to any home, Victorian or Modern. A Great OIL LAMP to have when the LIGHTS GO OUT!!
