Aladdin Model 10 lamp sold between
May 1921 through August 1922
The Aladdin model 10 lamp is identical
to the late version of the model 9 lamp except the 9 was changed to a 10. This appears to be a "new
model" for marketing purposes only. It was sold concurrently
with model 9. The model 10 had a limited sales channel which makes it fairly rare.
For part of the model 10 production run, a different construction
outer wick tube was used. This different construction outer
wick tube did not seem to be used on the model 9 lamps built
during the same time frame.

Left: outer wick tube used on model 9, some model 10 and
Right: outer wick tube of different construction and used
only on some model 10. The most obvious difference readily seen
is a one piece top flange. This flange is dual purpose in that it eases the wick back into the wick tubes when lowering the wick and it serves as an air baffle to regulate the location of the flame.
See the model 9 web page for pictures
of the burner and fonts.
