Old, Aladdin Alacite Electric Lamp with Shade and Precision Finial
This is a nice, vintage table lamp made by the Aladdin company. This is referred to as the Alacite #338 lamp with the Precision finial. I believe this is the tan version referring to the painted section just above the gold band. Some versions of this lamp had a three way turn switch with an illuminated base. This doesn't have a three way switch or an illuminated base and it does not appear the electrical has been changed on this lamp. It is embossed Aladdin on the bottom of the base and still has its original label from the Underwriters Laboratories inside that reads; Portable Lamp - Aladdin Industries, Inc. along with an inspection number. It has what appears to be the original socket, harp and electric cord. It comes with the popular Aladdin Precision Alcite finial and a two tier, two-tone pink and beige fiberglass-like shade with black and gold webbing. The top and bottom of the shade pieces are edged with gold plastic lacing.
It measures just over 30" to the top of the finial and the base measures about 5 1/2" in diameter. The bottom edge of the shade measures about 18 ¼" in diameter. The lamp base is in good condition with minor wear like on the gold band. There was actually another gold band on the small ring just above the painted area but it is all but worn away. There is some roughness to a couple of the little feet that raise the base up off the table otherwise there are no cracks or damage. The finial is also in good condition without damage. The shade is in very good condition with minimal wear.
