In full working order this lovely item heralds back to a time of cigars in smoky drawing rooms.
These table lighters were made by famous lighter manufacturer Ronson from 1935 – 1951 at their Art Metal Works in Newark, New Jersey, USA. Its US patent number is: 1986754
Made of polished chrome with a metal base it has a figure in chrome of a golfer at the end of his swing.
This is an early model (pre -1942). After this date the cover over the flint wheel was circular and not rectangular as in our model. On the earlier model the ‘flame wand’ has a round shaft rather than a square one in the later model.
The ‘Touch Tip’ method or ‘RTT’ as it was known, replaced the strike method that preceded it.
There is no engraving on the monogram shield so this item can be personalised.
A little wear and tear but nothing that detracts from this lovely item. More images available on request
Perfect gift for the golfer in your life!
