Back in 1930 The Mantle Lamp Company of America, noted for making Aladdin kerosene lamps, started manufacturing Aladdin Electric Lamps. This continued until 1955. Many of these early table lamps, not only had the main bulb for light, but had a bulb that would light the base. This would make an attractive subtle light or night light. These Aladdin Electric Lamps are well suited for today's decor. The one shown was made in 1949.
