Aladdin Model 10 lamp sold between
May 1921 through August 1922
The models 9, 10, and 11 are basically the same lamp with number changes to make them appear to be new products for marketing purposes. There are very slight variations in the font dimensions caused by tooling used to make the lamp fonts wearing out and being replaced by new tooling. Other than that the second year of model 9, model 10, and model 11 are the same lamp with very minor changes noted on the model 10 & 11 pages. Please refer to the model 9 web page for pictures
of the burner and fonts. The model 10 was sold concurrently
with the second year of model 9 production. The model 10 had a limited sales channel which makes it fairly rare.
For part of the model 10 production run, a different construction
outer wick tube was used. This different construction outer
wick tube did not seem to be used on the model 9 lamps built
during the same time frame.

Left: outer wick tube used on model 9, some model 10 and
Right: outer wick tube of different construction and used
only on some model 10. The most obvious difference readily seen
is a one piece top flange. This flange is dual purpose in that it eases the wick back into the wick tubes when lowering the wick and it serves as an air baffle to regulate the location of the flame.
