Probably from the 1950s, this ladies lighter was manufactured in Austria by Tiki. Made from gold-plated brass, it features a faux leather wrap with gold ornamentation and a floral needle point design on the front face. I can't know for certain because of its thin, clear protective covering, but I believe the circular design is an actual piece of vintage needle point -- not a simulation. There's a bit of wear to the gold tone plating that allows the patinated brass base metal to show through, giving this Tiki a splash of authentic shabby-chic vintage style.

The Tiki is a fully automatic lighter that functions just like a Ronson Standard. Depress the plunger to strike and light the wick, release to extinguish the flame. Flint and fluid are both added from the base. It looks to have been only lightly used and took little work for me to restored it back to excellent working condition. This Austrian lighter will make a fine carry-around piece and will be shipped with a flint and without fluid. (If you don't plan to use this lighter occasionally, I recommend removing the flint so it does not deteriorate and become impacted over time.) I've provided high quality photos to offer the best preview of this piece. Please take a look and feel free to ask any questions.
