While the white moonstone Solitaire is a handsome lamp, only a thousand of them were ever produced. The bowl design is believed to be a predecessor to the Lincoln drape. The earlier lamps have flat panels in the design around the top edge (shoulder) of the foot. The mold was later modified by smoothing out these flat panels to create a smooth shoulder. No printed sales literature has ever been found on these Aladdin lamps, making their distribution a mystery.
