    Here is my first example of this lamp.

    I bought it at a local auction many years ago and it had been kept in a shed.

    It was in a hellish state, but it looks fine now, Jeff.

    Sure does look nice, Jeff.

    The mantle lamps in the back are a fine bunch also.
    Do you have the metal clips for that not too common glass heat protector on the Aladdin?

    Thanks Dan, when I first obtained this lamp it had been in a shed for many years and it was suffering from the effects of the damp salt air.

    Also, it was splattered with different colours of paint and it had a good coating of bird droppings.

    But, it's an old and well made lamp, so I was able to restore it to it's present state.

    I do not have the metal clips, but the glass dome helps to keep dust off of the mantle, Jeff
