Does anyone have experience with Aladdins Lamps/Lanterns? My uncle has been talking about one that my grandmother used. I looked on the Web, but am wondering if the money would be well spent. ( the companies i checked want $130.00 for a lamp.)

I had two of them years ago when they were $26.95 ea. I was never smart enough to get them to operate well. The globes would smoke up, because I would have the wick to high. I converted them to electric. They are very attractive. They just don't put out much light, more of a mood (Dimmed) light.

They made them in plain basic and deluxe with hand painted shades.

Laughing Beetle - it looks like Aladdin Oil Lamp gets you quite a few hits on EBay. http://shop.ebay.com/items/_W0QQ_nkwZaladdinQ20oilQ20lampQQ_armrsZ1QQ_fromZR4 0QQ_mdoZ
