Found this beauty on ebay. $85 for everything but a new mantle. Looks to be in great shape. Model 11. I bought a brand new one about a year ago and I love these things. I burn it during the Winter in the family room for light and heat. That room is always a little chilly and the Aladdin warms it nicely. These are great for those Winter power outages.

Very nice!

What fuel do you use and have you tried the new mantles and what do you think?

Nice, real nice, and you got a smokin' deal.

I just piked up my first Aladdin this weekend. A brass Heritage with a 23 burner, shade ring and opal shade.
Bought it new from the Mennonite store for $150 and I'm not complaining about the price one bit.

Cool deal. Those lamps fascinate me, there a bit too rich for my blood, but it is a awesome design.

A great buy on a great lamp. We now have 3 Aladdin table lamps and two shelf lamps in the house,

I use the Klean heat kerosene from Home Depot. I bought some on sale the end of last season. I don't have the new lamp yet but in my current lamp it burns great. I need to get a mantle adapter to use the newer lox on mantles. I have no experience with the older mantles so I will never know the difference.

Did you rub it yet?

That is fricken nice.

It arrived today. What a beautiful lamp. I can't believe this was made in 1922-1928.
Here it is pictured with my 2011 Table lamp that I purchased last year for more than twice what I paid for the used model 11 on the left. The wick adjuster is much smoother than the new lamp.

Beautiful.

Gotta love eBay!

The history of technology in the early 1900's is amazing to study.

I'm crossing my fingers on a deal on an Aladdin and/or a Rayo - the pics were fuzzy. I'll check back in if/when I get them.

I hope to buy one soon.

Would an aluminum one be able to be powder-coated?

How do these compare to hurricane lanterns as far as light, heat, and safety

Light - Aladdins >>> huricane lanterns
Heat - Aladdins >> huricane lanterns
Safety - depends what you're talking about; the aladdin is more likely to get damaged if knocked around say with kids playing ball in the house but I do believe they self extinguish when tipped over, the huricane lanters I'm certain they self extinguish.
