    Pink Aladdin Lamp

    This Aladdin oil lamp brought $257.00 at auction since it was made of Pink Depression Glass!

    We see antique oil lamps often at Auction Bay, but we’re always fond of the ones which are marked from Aladdin.  Lamps from that company enjoy a good following and can be highly sought, but we were quite pleased with this particular lamp.

    This lamp brought in the bids because it was a rare Pink Depression Glass model, and even had its original Glass Flute marked with the Aladdin name.  It brought an impressive $257.00 at auction, even without its primary shade.

    Most old oil lamps don’t see this high of a sale, but any lamp with a name marked upon it has a good chance to be a collectible one.  Unusual shapes or colors help sweeten the potential for a good sale, and we’ll put in the research to identify the model if possible.  After identification, it’s the pictures that do the rest of the work, and we showcase each item with 6-12 professional-grade photos.

    Bring in your vintage lamp to Auction Bay, and we’ll find out how much they can bring for you!

    The Art Nouveau movement brought the idyllic designs and styles of the 1920s and 30s into full swing, and here we have a fine example of the decor from that era.  This lovely lady was a very pleasant surprise for us (and to our consignor as well).  While we could find no identifying marks on her, the design of this lamp is consistent with others from Aladdin – a company well-known in the antiques industry.  Sure enough, this gorgeous lamp brought an amazing $1,485 on eBay!

    At Auction Bay, we are always pleased to see a period item from the early half of the last century.  Period items that show Art Nouveau or Art Deco design always have a good chance of high sale value.
