Japanese Mid-Century Etched Chrome Nude Flask & Cigarette Lighter/Case by Prince


This rare pair of a Japanese Mid-Century flask and combination wheel and flint lighter/cigarette case was manufactured by the Prince Manufacturing Company during the Post-War American Occupation. Each piece of this Prince range was hand engraved with images of Asian female nudes and understandably they were very popular with both the occupying US forces and the troops on R and R in Japan during the Korean War. The combination lighter/cigarette case (4.75 in x 3.25 in) is triple signed Prince to the inside of the engine turned interior and the wheel and flint mechanism is branded Omega. The flask has a screw top together with a shot glass cap over it. The engraving on both is delightful and the minor differences are clear evidence of its hand engraved pedigree. Both pieces show the usual signs of use but display beautifully.
