The electric lamp of which this Alacite body was a part was made by Aladdin in 1940. It was called G206. It is made of Alacite glass, and, being Pre-WWII, contains uranium, --- so it glows under a black light. The base originally had a metal stand that was marked Aladdin. Unfortunately, this piece is not marked.

The body weighs 1-1/2" lbs. It measures 8-3/4" tall and 4" at the widest point. The bottom opening measures 2-5/16" in diameter outer rim to outer rim, and 1-3/4" in diameter inner rim to inner rim. The top opening in the cap measures 1/2" in diameter.

Condition: No chips, cracks, or scratches. There is a 1-1/2" x 2" area at the bottom of one side where the alacite material seems to be thinner than the rest. (See last photo.)

1. Shipping costs for most items reflect what it costs to deliver an order from Massachusetts to our most distant domestic destinations (for instance, the West Coast). If the shipping and handling cost paid is excessive, WE WILL AUTOMATICALLY REFUND the difference between the amount paid and the actual cost when shipped.

2. We combine shipping. Please contact seller for s/h cost for multiple items, being specific about destination zip code and which items you are interested in.

3. If the package will be 4 lbs or less, we are willing to ship first class international, which is much lower than priority mail international, but the item would not be insured, and the buyer would shoulder the risk of loss or damage
