Aladdin lamp, Washington Drape with Chicago Aladdin Model-B brass burner
Model B-53 - Clear Beta Crystal ,(circa 1941-1955)
VINTAGE, ORIGINAL, Model B-53 - Clear Beta Crystal Aladdin Lamp,(circa 1941-1955)
THE WICK WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED. There are some issues with the Model B Burner, it has a small bent area on the gallery.
EVERYTHING IS ORIGINAL ON THE ALADDIN but MAY NEED A MANTLE and HOLDER ???
NO CHIPS BUT a few HAIRLINE CRACKS.(Not sure if form the mold when being made).......THE GLASS THREADS HOLDING THE BURNER IS WITHOUT FLAWS........ THE FILLER CAP IS INTACT BUT THE NICKLE IS STARTING TO WEAR OFF THE BRASS AS CAN BE EXPECTED OF ITEMS THIS OLD. THE FONT and BASE MEASURE 6" IN DIA. THE LAMP BASE MEASURES APPROX. 12 1/2 " TOP TO BOTTOM. I WASHED OFF THE WORST OF THE DUST BUT LEAVE A FINAL CLEANING UP TO THE NEW OWNER.
Real nice oil lamp. Thanks for looking.
