I really like the solid quality of this distinctive British purse or pocket lighter. It is petite, but by no means dainty. Lesser known in the United States, this English-made Rolstar was likely manufactured during the mid-1950s. It features a heavy chromium plate finish with a thick, deep red acrylic wrap accented with a pair of diamond-shaped art nouveau appliqués. This Rolstar is in pristine condition and works perfectly.

This Rolstar is a fully automatic lighter that functions just like Ronson lighters from this era: 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. Now that I've replaced its missing wick and repacked the fuel chamber, it is in excellent working condition. This exceptional English lighter will make a fine, durable everyday piece. It will be shipped with a new 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.
