Tall Lincoln drape lamps were sold for 10 years. They
have been found in clear, Alacite, cobalt blue and ruby red.
Only a very small number of clear lamps were ever made and
they may never have gone into the normal sales channels. The
alacite lamp on the other hand was Aladdin's best selling
lamp almost every year of production. The cobalt blue lamp was only made for the 1940 Lamp selling season. Most of these very likely had the scallop foot design. The ruby red lamp was only made during the 1941 lamp selling season and was likely halted because wartime restricted metal was used to make the colour.
Over the years several molds were used to make the lamps
and there was often a lot of variation among the molds. It is believed that the first mold used in to make the Tall Lincoln Drape lamp was the scallop foot mold. Subsequent molds did not carry the scallop pattern. The rarity of the scallop foot makes it sought after by collectors.
The Alacite, blue and red lamps came with brass burners.
Only the last year of production came with Nashville burners.
The tall lincoln drape lamp has been reproduced for several
years and there are more reproduction red and cobalt tall
Lincoln drape lamps than Aladdin ever made. Reproductions
have been seen in clear, red, blue and amber (Aladdin never
made any in amber). a very small number of alacite like reproductions were made in the 1980's
