Rare Pair Of Vintage Aladdin Alacite Wall Sconces Old Formula With Lampshades For SaleWelcome; this listing is for a pair of rare old formula pre WWII Aladdin Alacite Wall Sconces with lampshades included. There is no makers marks on the backs of these lamps and the Alacite specific paint that Aladdin used on some Alacite lamps on the back of these lamps is intact. Both lamps have no outward chips or any cracks. There are some fleabites, small chips around the edge of the mounting hole on the backsides of the lamps. Also there are fleabites, small chips along the backsides of the lamps along the edges (please see pictures). When they were hung in my dining room I could not see any of these imperfections since they were facing the wall. The black marks on the back of one of the lamps is where the previous owner attached a shoe foam pad to the back of the lamp. This does not show to the front and I assume it can be removed, I will leave that to the new owner to decide that. The measurements on these lamps are 3" wide and 9 1/2" in length. The arm extension from back to the end of the arm where the socket attaches is 7 1/4". The shades are clip-on and new. The paper wax dripping tubes, one is old and the other is newer, so there is a color variance, but these can be easily replaced if this is a concern. I like to keep things as original as possible. These have been in my dining room and it is time for them to go to a loving home where they will be appreciated. They both do not have original wiring but 6' feet of brown fabric cord. The switches work on the bottom of the lamps, but I have had them on a clicker. I do not believe the switches are the originals (I have examined and one is and one is not, the lamp with the hanging paper tag in the pictures has a newer switch). Please look at the pictures carefully for a better description. These lamps do not have a pinkish tint to them and they are very closely matched color wise. These both glow brightly under a UV light, which is hard to find these days in this model. This sale does not include a lightbulb, finial, mounting hardware or harp with these lamps but the lampshades are included. The Alacite wall pocket in one of the pictures is also not included. These lamps are old, the wiring is old and may need to be replaced. I am selling these lamps “as is” with no guarantees. I strongly recommend that you have the wiring checked or replaced by a qualified electrician before using this lamps. I am not responsible for the wiring or safety of these lamps.
