The Aladdin model 23 Deluxe lamp did not start out as an Aladdin lamp. This model lamp started out being manufactured for a Southern California lamp dealer, Ken Moore in the mid 1970's. Ken sold the business and moved to Northern Califonia taking the tooling with him. In the early mid 1980's Ken (my neighbor and lamp mentor) sold the tooling for the lamp to Tom Teeter of American Lamp Supply. Tom put the lamp back into production with a model 11 like foot. The Amarican Lamp Supply company was merged into the new Aladdin lamp company when Tom and a couple partners purchased the Aladdin lamp division in 1999. The K102 Deluxe lamp became an Aladdin lamp.
This lamp was manufactured by Sherwood International in England. These lamps are higher quality than Aladdin designed lamps, made from thicker brass with high attention to detail and quality then coated with a clear lacquer finish. The base ring is solid and has a green felt base.
The 1-1/2 quart bowl and filler cap is shared with the B-225 deluxe brass fount lamp which also originally came from Ken Morre in the mid 1970's.
The filler cap is machined out of solid brass and is shared with the B-225 fount lamp.
