The Florentine lamp is the shortest of Aladdin's vase lamps. It measures 8 1/2 inches tall. The vase is made of moonstone glass and was offered in rose, white, and green. The inside of the vase was painted white, probably to prevent the metal fount from showing through the sometimes translucent moonstone. The paint however is water based and easily washed off resulting in the lamps often being found without paint or with only portions of it remaining.
