On this Vertique there
is no 1/4 inch band of smooth glass extending out from the diamond pattern.
The foot is identical to that of the Aladdin "Quilt" lamps
but since the Quilt lamps were never made in the yellow color this foot
had to be molded specifically for a Vertique lamp! The same mold
could just as easily have been used to mold Vertique feet in any of
the four colors. This proves that at least two different molds
were used to produce the Vertique foot--one with the 1/4 inch ring of
smooth glass and one without!!
Note the 1/4 inch band of smooth
glass next to the diamond pattern on this Vertique foot. This
was always thought to be the "true" Vertique foot and if the
foot did not have this 1/4 inch band it was a "Quilt" foot
that had been used to repair the lamp.
