1939 Aladdin G184 Opalique glass table lamp

$725.00

Description

Presented for your consideration is a classic urn style table lamp, with arms, in a fluted design – the Aladdin G184 was made in 1939. The lamp stands 23″ tall, add 2.5″ when the finial is included. This Aladdin lamp is a rare find and is in pristine condition. We have professionally cleaned and rewired the lamp. The brass harp and socket are original to the lamp. The brass harp has been carefully cleaned, leaving the natural patina that slowly developed over 80 years. The copper socket has been refurbished and is a better quality socket refurbished, than what can be purchased new today. The cord and plug have been replaced with a white linen cord that matches the period of the lamp, plus a matching plug reminiscent of the time the lamp was made. On page 101 of the Aladdin Electric Lamps book, the G184 photo shows a scroll finial. The Aladdin Electric Lamps #5 Collectors Manual and Price Guide lists this lamps value at between $700-$800. After searching and searching, finally, the hard-to-find Opalique scroll finial was found – in perfect condition! The finial is included in the sale. Great price for a great lamp. Shipping will be added if it is not picked up at the shop.

22″ tall from base to top of glass finial • 10.5″ body • 4″ base with four feet

The shade is a fine white linen designer shade that fits nicely on the lamp. The shade is for display only but can be purchased separately for $68.00.This what the lamp looked like when we found it – no cracks or chips (not even on the base which is common). No repairs had been done yet. The cord had been replaced by the previous owner, but it was not the right one – luckily the original socket was still on the lamp! Oftentimes folks who rewire old lamps mistakenly toss out the valuable old solid brass socket shell that has a patina that matches the age of the lamp.The body has been cleaned and the nicotine that somehow got inside has been carefully removed.The Mantle Lamp Co. Chicago sticker is the original name of the Aladdin Company and is shown here still affixed to the base of the lamp.Check out the bubbles in the old clear glass finial – the brass base is in beautiful condition and is identified as #1 Base made between 1934-1939. The Scroll Aladdin finial is available for $175.00 and we have two available. This finial goes with this lamp, but if you need one for your lamp, we have a couple to choose from.Original copper socket that we refurbished. This brass socket cleaned up very well.
