Bernie Holmes arranges a collection of Baker Light Lamps in the display room of The National Aladdin Lamp Collectors Club convention on Thursday. The purple version of the lamp was not known to exist until only a few years ago, and this convention is the first time the entire collection has been assembled or photographed in one place. The lamps were only produced during 1953, and undamaged specimens are rare.
