It may not be a GPA, but it does have a mantle (asking for a friend)

#1

Post by smallenginelover »

I have a relative that was given the lamp for doing some carpentry work for an older lady, he said the lamp had been sitting under the house he was working on for 40 years. He knows that it is an Aladdin Kerosene Lamp but wants to know what anyone else would know about it. I don't know much about these Aladdin lamps but I figured some of you would. He found it in Colorado. A little of what I think would be useful information would be what size or kind of mantle it takes and about what year it was made, or even what model it was.
Thanks to anyone who has information :-D

The model # is one the wheel that raises and lowers the wick. The chimney is a Lox-On, and appears to be the high-elevation chimney, which is taller than the normal one--and makes sense for Colorado. The mantle is a Lox-On too. Unfortunately, the newer Aladdin mantles are POS. Look at them funny and they break. At least they aren't cheap!

The fount is really cool!

Take your time and get the wick raiser unstuck with some Kero on the wick or you can strip the raiser gear and that is bad. Gentile and not force it. It is likely a "B" or "C" and as was mentioned it is on the writing on the face of the winder wheel. Very nice find

Heed the above advice. It applies to any wick lamp or lantern.

There are Aladdin collector sites out there that I would investigate to see if there's anything special about that one, other than being a nice looking one. That alone would make it desirable for many.

I’m guessing that is a model B, Vertique in green moonstone from 1938, model B-92.
The Courter manual at 10$-15$ comes in handy.

Thank you!

To me a lamp without a shade is creepy!

Thank you everyone for the information, I have e-mailed the owner saying to be gentle with it and take a picture of the wick raiser or see what it says if possible. Hopefully I can upload a picture of that sometime tomorrow.
Once again thanks for all the input!

Looks veeery close to my amber B from WWII except for where it threads onto, or into the fount.
