Burner & Shade Options
The "Nouveau" is available with one burner, the Aladdin #500 Burner. If you don't know about Aladdin Lamps, they are specially designed burners that have Mantles like Coleman lanterns and burn non-pressurized fuel and give off roughly 50 Watts worth of light. This Lamp can be ordered with a shade holder for 10" Shades, and those different shades can be seen Here.
The "Ramona" is available with 3 different burners. The Lamp can be built with an Aladdin #500, a Den Haan Rotterdam #20 Matador Burner, or a Plume & Atwood #3 Hinge Burner.
The Aladdin #500 is the current generation of Mantle Burners of the famous brand going back over 100 years. The Lamp is like a Coleman in that it has a mantle that incandesces when heated by the blue flame. Aladdin Burners do not work on Pressure and are much safer to use indoors. This burner style can be ordered with a 10" shade holder, and an accompanying shade can be purchased Here.
The Den Haan Rotterdam #20 Matador Burner is perhaps the finest burner on the market today, featuring a #30 Vulcan wick, matador flame spreader, and matador chimney. It is the brightest non-mantle lamp burner made. The intense flame can be bright enough to require a shade.
The Plume & Atwood #3 hinged burners have have been out of production for over 60 years. These burners are found "in the wild" in new-old-stock condition, or restored and polished for operation. These are American Made and use a lip style chimney that is locked into place with a single screw and can tip back to allow access to the wick for lighting or trimming.
The "Julian" Table Lamp is Available with 3 different burners. Queen Anne #2 or Kosmos #12 and #14 Burners.
The Queen Anne #2 is arguably the most common lamp burner ever made, with a 7/8" wick this is a true hallmark of America Lamps. It is the most simple and effective burner out there.
Kosmos #12 and #14 Burners are made by French Manufacturer Guadard. These are great burners for starters that are looking for Ample Light. These burners are more efficient in that they have a center air way that helps feed air to the flame. With a matching kosmos chimney, the flame is drawn up tall and produces quite a bit of light.
These Solid Brass Lamps can be ordered in Polished Brass, Brass Patina, or Nickel Plated Brass.
