Aladdin and the Magic Lamp SET
A Full Set of 12 Rosenthal Aladdin plates designed by Bjorn Wiinblad.
They tell the story of Aladdin, a Middle-Eastern folk tale 1001 Nights. The impoverished young man Aladdin is recruited by a sorcerer from the Maghreb (who passes himself off as the brother of Aladdin’s late father) to retrieve a wonderful oil lamp from a booby-trapped magic cave. After the sorcerer attempts to double-cross him, Aladdin finds himself trapped in the cave. Fortunately, Aladdin retains a magic ring lent to him by the sorcerer. When he rubs his hands in despair, he inadvertently rubs the ring, and a djinni appears, who takes him home to his mother. Aladdin is still carrying the lamp, and when his mother tries to clean it a second far more powerful djinni appears who is bound to do the bidding of the person holding the lamp. With the aid of the djinni of the lamp, Aladdin becomes rich and powerful and marries princess Badroulbadour, the Sultan’s daughter. The djinni builds Aladdin a wonderful palace – far more magnificent than that of the Sultan himself.
Each wall plate measures 17 cm diameter.
