Known for their elegant, sometimes opulent, lighters and fashion accessories, this fully automatic table lighter was manufactured by the Evans Case Company of Attleborough, MA. Here's a description of this lighter set I found in a vintage Evans print ad:

"Evans French Enamel" (Limoges): The "Jewelry of the Home" -- Masterpieces of the finest craftsmanship by the world's foremost creators of fashion-wise accessories in vitrified enamel fused to metal for beauty and permanence.

Jewel-embedded lighter -- An unforgettable gift for any occasion. Illustrated in Pastel Yellow with contrasting light Topaz enamel stones."

The works well and the set is in lovely condition. There's a bit of wear to the original gold plating on the lighter, but no major dents, scratches or damages to the enamel finish. It will be shipped with a flint and without fluid. (Please do not store this lighter with the flint though, as it will deteriorate and become impacted over time.) I've disassembled and cleaned the firing mechanism and file wheel, unblocked the flint chamber, trimmed and tested the original Evans wick, and restored this luxurious table lighter to working order. It sparks well and usually takes a couple of tries to light. I've provided high quality photos to offer the best preview of this vintage set. Please take a look and feel free to ask any questions.
