Cartier Paris, Sterling Silver ‘Street Lamp’ Table Lighter, 1930s

$24,622.71

About the Item

Cartier, Paris A remarkable and most likely unique Sterling silver table lighter in the form of a 1930s gas street lamp. The tapering lantern reflector with blue and frosted glass panes, holds the wick which is revealed by removing the chained silver finial at the top, which is cleverly ‘stored’ when the lighter is in use, on a post that projects from the corner. The wick efficiently runs through the central column into the reservoir in the swept base. The streetlamp sits on a circular plinth, engraved into sections to emulate a stylized section of pavement. In seemingly unused condition, with its original Cartier presentation case, this is the first time we have encountered this design. Stamped Cartier Paris to the edge, with poinçon marks to the side and base.
