    This is the same lamp as Sunshine F105 but with this artichoke shade it becomes model F104. The shade here is an original and probably worth around as much as the lamp if not more. ::Neil::

    Hmmm. Thank you for that. My big problem is I can't resist the temptation to see another variation in the engineering. Means I have a lot here and the individual beauty of any one lamp tends to fade into the clutter. This shade actually normally sits on a Sunshine Safety lamp up in my bedroom. I did have two but the other got traded out in exchange for a Nagel Chase 150. ::Neil::

    Not for the "original"! There is a slight difference in the mold pattern between the Aladdin "artichoke" shade and the original that came on the Sunshine Safety. The finish on the glass is different as well.

    I think the Aladdin shade is heavier as well. I know I have seen a green one that was around twic the weight of my white one. The two I had both came on old 20s Sunshine Safety lamps and I am in no doubt both were originals to the lamps. Very light with a slightly rough texture on the outer surface. They are a very hard thing to find now and probably serious money when you do. ::Neil::
