Here is an adorable ALADDIN TALL LINCOLN DRAPE kerosene oil lamp from the 1940s that has been converted to electricity. It is an ALACITE lamp produced prior to WORLD WAR 2 using Uranium Oxide in the glass formula. One of our photos shows it being exposed to a black light (breathtaking). It is marked on the bottom by an "A" (as pictured) denoting ALACITE. The ALACITE glass creator Henry Hellmers described its color as "an ivory opal glass" and in Aladdins advertising materials of that day it was described as "A startling beautiful lamp base, and pedestal material, which resembles many of the semiprecious mineralites in texture, and has much of the softness and tone of tusk(genuine ivory) the only color in which it is available". The oil lamp has a small bit of damage at the oil fill cap which I have tried to picture and it has been covered with a brass screw on fill cap. Also there is a surface crack on the base about 1 to 1 1/4" long and small chip (pictured). Other than that it is in wonderful condition. The shade is a gorgeous milk glass white with hand painted pink roses trimmed in green leaves and stems and then trimmed in gold. The shade is in excellent condition with the exception of a few very tiny nicks on the top and bottom rims which is pretty normal for this type of lamp. Included is a clear glass lox on chimney. The lamp stands about 25 1/2" tall and the shade is about 10" in diameter and about 7" tall.
