They are still in business today.
This little novelty lighter looks like an oil drum, or industrial container.
There is no top, not sure if it ever had one or not.

Marked "JAPAN" on the bottom.

Nice vintage condition.
The advertising is adhered to the chrome, it is made from a coated plastic paper, like a sticker, but heavier. It have survived surprisingly well considering its age.
I had very light, if any, usage.
