Rare American Art Deco Washington Bicentennial Souvenir, Electric Cigar Lighter

$450

About

This very rare, lovely and eccentric little cigar lighter cannon was a souvenir produced in 1932 to commemorate the bicentennial of George Washington's birth in 1732. On one side it bears a relief reproduction of Archibald Willard's painting "The Spirit of '76" above the date 1732 and on the other a draped American flag above the date 1932. We have had our technician rewire the mechanism and once plugged in, it works fabulously and glows with a push of the red Bakelite button. (The Surgeon General has warned us all that smoking is not good for our health and at Decollect we would like to humbly suggest that should you leave this lighter switched on for too long it probably won't do too much to improve your health either!) Having said that this piece is very rare, functional, decidedly handsome and displays beautifully!
