Description

Vintage 1940 Tube Lighter. Custom painted design on plated brass. Sparks well and in VGC

Tube lighters and especially those shaped like lipstick tubes were highly popular in the 1940's and 50's. Here is a highly unusual flint-style lighter. It has an attachment ring which permits affixing it to key ring and etc. It has no maker's mark so the following information is speculative. It is made from chrome plated brass which is indicative of early 1940's construction. The overall design is similar to those made by Flair. This could be a Flair knock-off or perhaps a trade lighter. The lighter functions like most roll and light lighters. You remove the top section of the tube. Rotate the sparkwheel to ignite and replace the cap to extinguish. You remove the bottom portion of the tube to access the flint chamber and to re fuel.

The lighter was completely disassembled. All functions were examined for proper operation. The lighter was carefully cleaned and a new flint was installed. The outer tubes were hand painted to provide a unique look. This vintage lighter looks great and sparks well. It should provide many years of use. However, being a used item, no guarantee of continued operation is offered.

Please reference the photos, seller's notes, and additional specifications for further specifics.
