English Art Deco Chrome and Wrinkle Paint Architectural Automatic Table Lighter



This unusual English Art Deco chrome and black wrinkle paint, wheel and flint table lighter features an asymmetrical and architectural design. The body of the lighter is a chrome-plated pillar that is sliced off at an angle at the top and at the bottom is mounted to a black double offset disk base that in turn sits on three pill shaped disk feet. The wheel and flint mechanism is triggered automatically when the lighter is lifted up from a flat service. This lighter is unsigned and the only marking is the word Petrol incised into the fuel filler screw on the underside. The lighter is in excellent condition with only light signs of age and is working well.
