Product code - 0490B
Sold on 22nd August 2014

The Model 1609 (Personal) Aladdin Bakelite Lamp is unique to Australia. It was only produced at the Sydney manufacturing plant between 1944 and 1952.

This example is in excellent condition, complete with the correct bakelite filler cap.

The dark brown bakelite is in perfect condition without any chalking, breaks, chips or damage of any kind.

The shade is a reproduction of the Aladdin 601 style and has a frosted top and clear skirt. The overburner shade holder is not Aladdin branded either.

The lamp is fitted with a Model B burner in good working order and complete with a flame spreader and wick.

The chimney is an unbranded replacement.

In order to burn correctly and to provide the maximum amount of light, the burner needs to be fitted with a mantle. Due to the fragile nature of the mantles, this Aladdin bakelite lamp is not fitted with one but a mantle will be supplied if wanted.

Height to the top of the shade – 61cm (24″)

Diameter of the shade (fitter) – 25cm (9.75″)
