Japanese Mid-Century Modern Chrome & Plastic Rocket, Wheel & Flint Table Lighter

$375

About

This Japanese made Mid-Century Modern wheel and flint table lighter features a chrome plated rocket body with red plastic fins and stands on a black plastic triangular base. It would appear this lighter has never been used as both the wick and wadding are in pristine condition and there is no wear to the lighter itself. The US distributor of these lighters was the famed calendar/promotions company, Brown and Bigelow and the manufacturing credit usually being attributed to the Japanese lighter company, Prince. A fun piece, in great condition that displays beautifully and is functional as well.
