Aladdin Lamp Finials Reproduced in Metal

A number of styles of Aladdin lamp finials have been reproduced in metal. All the new pieces are white metal (pot metal) with a brass finish.

Some of the new metal finials were originally made in glass only. Metal reproductions of Aladdin finials originally made in glass include the styles collectors call Precision (Fig. 1, right), Lyre, Wreath, Fanciful, Peacock Urn and Bouquet.

New metal finials copied from original metal finials sold with Aladdin lamps include the styles collectors call Sword (Fig. 1, left), Grecian, Iron Lance, Maltese and Mirage.
