Condition


This antique sterling silver lighter is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

There is some crazing to the original enamel panel, in keeping with age and use.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the body and part hallmarks to each detachable component and the upper plateau are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this rare antique lighter.
