Newest Aladdin Knight meets J. W. “Bill” Courter

As many of you know, we have been working hard on Imperial Lighting Co. (ILC) Website for several months. We’ve been adding products, categories, images, content and a lot of behind-the-scenes integration to make our user experiences great. Thankfully, we have a tremendously talented webmaster to handle all the heavy duty technical “stuff”. Meet Kevin Eggers, webmaster extraordinaire!

As part of an ongoing plan to promote awareness about the Aladdin Knights, The Mystic Light Newsletter, Aladdin Collecting and sharing of information, Kevin and I had the pleasure of spending some time with J. W. “Bill” Courter, The Bright Knight. During our recent visit with Bill, we presented a web-based delivery platform integrated into the Imperial Lighting Co. Website which presents the opportunity to offer digital access to a free trial to the Mystic Light Newsletter. Imperial Lighting Co. in cooperation with Bill Courter will be launching this free trial offer in August of 2019.

During our visit, we spent time talking about lamps, and the history of Aladdin. Bill eagerly showed us his extensive collection of Aladdin Lamps, including his very first Aladdin, a Green and White Moonstone Corinthian.

Kevin asked Bill to autograph his copy of Aladdin The Magic Name in Lamps and Bill signed-up Kevin as an Aladdin Knight of the Mystic Light. Kevin is the latest Aladdin Knight, #9578. Congratulations, Kevin! Congratulations Bill for adding another enthusiast to the group!

ILC thanks Kevin for taking our vision and turning it into a user-friendly digital format in our effort to advance collecting, making new friends and the sharing of reliable fact-based, historically accurate information. Great job, Kevin! We appreciate having you on our team.

Aladdin Lamp B2301 Brass Heritage Lamp Discontinued

Aladdin B2301 Brass Heritage Lamp has been Discontinued

Brass Heritage Lamp B2301 with M741 Morning Glory Shade

June 2019 – Crownplace Brands (CPB) has Informed Authorized Aladdin Lamp Dealers of their plans to discontinue the Aladdin Brass Heritage Lamp, at least for now.

The venerable Brass Heritage Lamp has occupied a prominent space in the Aladdin Product line for decades. Originally styled after the model 12 table lamp of the late 1920’s and early 1930’s, the crisp lines of the B2301 have made it a popular choice among consumers over many years. The highly polished brass and acrylic lacquer finish made the lamp visually appealing, durable, and easy to care for.

Ah, but all good things come to an end. With home décor skewing away from brass accents and more toward nickel and bronze finishes, maybe it is time for this old friend to have a break.

CPB indicates they will be focusing on some other Aladdin Lamp projects for now, with a focus on glass lamps in particular.

At the time of this writing, Imperial Lighting Co. Still has a few B2301 Aladdin Brass Heritage Table Lamps available in our inventory.
