This cute figural Japanese table lighter was manufactured by Amico in the 1950s. Depicting a miniature donkey, the base is cast from pot metal with a small brass lighter insert. I've gently cleaned both pieces to remove grim from age and storage, taking care to retain the original patinas. I believe this pieces was originally offered with a matching elephant, depicting the opposing political mascots of the Democratic and Republican parties.

This figural table lighter looks to have been barely used and now works perfectly. I've fully disassembled and cleaned its firing mechanism, brushed the file wheel clean, unblocked the flint chamber, and trimmed/tested the original wick to restore this cute political novelty lighter to excellent working condition. It will be shipped with a flint and without fluid. (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 provided high quality photos to offer the best preview of this vintage Japanese lighter. Please take a look and feel free to ask any questions.
