This stylish, modernistic Ronson butane table lighter dates to the late 1960s. Only produced from 1967 until 1971, this Varaflame Luralite features a brass and gold toned firing mechanism with an electroplated silver mosaic finish on the cylindrical body and cork pad on the base. This earlier model Luralite has a fixed firing mechanism; flint and butane are added from the base (see photo #4). It has a fingertip flame control; photo #5 shows the flame level at its middle setting. The Luralite was manufactured in the United States Woodbridge, NJ before Ronson shifted much of its manufacturing to Asia in the 1970s.

Though it has a few minor nicks and the factory printing on its base is quite worn, this Varaflame table lighter is still an eye-catching beauty. It works well and will be shipped with a flint and without gas. (If you plan to only display this lighter, please remove the flint so it does not deteriorate and become re-impacted over time.) I've full disassembled and cleaned the firing mechanism, brushed the file wheel, and I've checked the fuel chamber for leaks: its seal is in place, no tell-tale hissing after refueling, and it seems to hold a charge well. I've provided high quality photos to offer the best preview of this lighter's condition. Please take a look and feel free to ask any questions.
