Yellow Vertique Model B Aladdin Lamp – Antique Vintage Glass Kerosene Burner

Product #G322E

This is the yellow moonstone vertique Aladdin lamp that was manufactured in 1938. The moonstone name denotes the way the glass appears to glow like the light of the moon, and the name Vertique refers to the vertical ridges of the bowl. There are a couple of unique characteristics to these Aladdin lamps. One is the intense glow the “yellow” Vertique displays under a black light. This is due to the use of uranium as a coloring agent in the glass. This is similar to Vaseline glass. This vertically ribbed glass lamp was available in yellow, white, rose and jade green moonstone art glass. The bowl is joined to the foot with a brass connector. Exceptional all original condition on the base and burner. This lamp measures 24 1/2″ high, and to the top of the bug screen is 26 1/2″ high, the base has a diameter of 6 1/2″. Notice on the knob to raise and lower the wick there is information that reads, ‘Mantle Lamp Co. – Nu-type Model B – Aladdin – Patents Pending – Made in USA – Chicago, Illinois’. Excellent all original condition. We currently have a collection of four different colors of this same lamp.
