We have an Aladdin mantle light. Its not recommended to burn alcohol. What i’ve read is the alcohol burns So hot the chinney will break. All the old alcohol lamps have wicks. An Aladdin you have to watch the mantle constantly and adjust with k1 fuel. The older wick table lamps for alcohol didnt have chimneys. They had globes or even soldered shades. Thinking the meyda tiffany. No burn lampshades. Very nice shades. I used to see the large wick sold in hardware stores, if nothing else it made good showshoe binding. A speciality item now. It would probably be available at a Amish supplier. I have an old very large wick lamp antique. Its art nouveau. Great style for a round oak family table in the dining or fireplace room.
