Aladdin model 23 short Lincoln drape table lamp is a reissue
of the model B short Lincoln drape lamps. They represent the
first glass Aladdin lamps sold in the United States since
the clear plain stem Washington drape (B-53) was discontinued
in 1955. They have also been in production longer than any
other Aladdin glass lamp.
The new lamps are easily told from the earlier lamps by
the metal collar burner thread. The early issue has a
glass collar with recessed metal threads.
To further minimize confusion, Aladdin started marking the
foot of the new lamp with the year
of manufacture. Early 1974 lamps were undated. Late 1974 lamps and all later lamps
Very early undated 1974 lamps were sold with Brazil model
The burlap shade was offered with the 1974 amber lamps.
