manufactured 1930-1935

   The Aladdin vase lamps consist of a hollow glass vase with a removable oil pot. The glass is quite fragile and is easily chipped or cracked. Removing and replacing the oil pot when filling or cleaning often lead to the glass vase being chipped at it's upper edge. These Aladdin lamps came in a wide variety of finishes and were most often sold with decorative parchment shades. There were three different heights in the vase lamps: 12 inch, 10 inch and 8 1/2 inches. The shorter "Florentine" lamps were made in 1935 and are highly sought by collectors. Although many vase lamps were sold in the 1930's era, very few can be found that are in perfect condition.
