Rare Alfred Dunhill Ruler Lighter in Box, 1940


These ruler lighters are very rare and even more harder to find in their original boxes. This lighter is silver plate and first introduced by Dunhill in the 1940s. They are the ultimate desk accessory as a chic lighter ruler combo. This has original plating which is quite intact. There is a monogram W W C on the back side. The lighter mechanism works perfectly. The outer case has typical wear of the period.
