Cartier Desk Clock and Lighter


A stunning and exceptionally rare, English made, gold plated table lighter, made for and retailed by Cartier. The lighter holds an eight day clock set in an octagonal frame in the center of the lighter's body. The body is fully engine turned and has thick gold plate applied to it. The body is free from any dents or damage, and the lighter and clock are in working order. The lighter will simply need to have fluid poured into the body. This model of lighter is known as the "Classic Jumbo" and is a lift-arm style table lighter with a horizontal friction wheel and thumb wheel. The model was originally produced by Adie Brothers Ltd., in Birmingham, England ca. 1935, and was originally patented by the Clark Brothers in 1928.
