The little known model C Alacite pedestal shelf lamp seems to have been sold in small quantities and I have not found them in Aladdin catalogues.  It does not have a filler cap so the burner needs to be removed for filling.



The model C pedestal shelf lamp design was resurrected and a filler opening added in 2011 for a limited edition of 285 lamps.  These lamps were offered to Aladdin Knight members only with the proceeds to go to support the Aladdin Museum. The new lamp is dated 2011 on the bottom to eliminate any confusion with the earlier model C lamp.



A special run of ruby red pedestal lamps were made for the 2012 Annual Aladdin gathering. The same mold that created the cobalt lamps in 2011 was used. The lamp was available in two ruby red shades.  One is a "Pigeon blood ruby" and the other a lighter art glass ruby.

CR0500-1 Pigeon blood ruby - 85 made
CR500-2 Art glass ruby - 65 made
