Vintage 1940 Cobalt BlueTall Lincoln Drape B-76 Aladdin Oil Lampwith the Scalloped design on the footMint Condition and All Original
Recently purchase from it's original owner, thisimpeccable,Rare Cobalt Blue, Tall Lincoln Drape B-76 Aladdin Oil Lamp in mint condition. This lamp is like it was when it was when it was bought new! It does show some wear on the bottom feet [typical for it's age], and there is some wear on the parts that were handled from use, [adjustment knob, filler cap]. It was taken care of very well.It is all original from the 1940's. The oil filler is at a slight angle, and the base is scalloped and a seam suggesting a 2 part mold with no breaks. I have added a photo from the "Aladdins Collectors Manual" to show the difference between new and old on the bottom of the lamp base. I also have some photo's of the base of the font to show that it is a one part lamp. (Reproduction lamps are 2 part and are glued together where the stem meets the font.) I have also tried to get photo's of the burner treads in the top, to show that the burner treads are at the top of the opening and not the bottom.I consulted with "J.W. "Bill" Courter" to verify the lamps integrity. He put us in touch with a dealer and a member of the "Aladdin Collectors Society" from which we had purchased a new/old mantel and new/old chimney to make this a functional lamp. This lamp is ready for use with all original parts! All you will have to do is add some oil (about 1 qt) and make a few adjustment (as usual for these lamps).This Lamp is flawless, it has no chips, cracks, fractures,absolutely no damage other than the normal wear. It was hard to get pictures of the color because it is such a dark blue it is almost a purplish color with different lighting, it isabsolutelybeautiful!! I have tried to get all of the photo's that I thought you would need. Please look them over closely and if I have not got pictures of what you need, let me know I will do what I can for you.
The size of this lamp is:10 1/4" from the bottom to the top of the fontand is 13 3/4" with the burner in place25" tall with the chimney on.The base is 6" across, the font is 6 1/4" acrossAnd the lamp weighs about 4 1/2 lbs.
This is the one lamp that would complete anyone's collection beautifully!! Or would be great to use. A very nice conversation piece. One of a kind.This is not a Reproduction!!!
