This is a working Ronson Tall Whirlwind Lighter madein England in the 1950's. Ronson first introduced the Whirlwind in 1941. The Tall Whirlwind is almost double the height of a normal Whirlwind. This lighter is chrome with a machine tuned finish. The engraving plate on this lighter has been inscribed with the initials "C G H". The Whirlwind has a wind shields which can be pulled up from the body of the lighter for outdoor use. This shield slides up and locks in place and then slides down with ease.

First produced in 1957, the Pipemaster is essentially an oversized Whirlwind and, in fact, is labeled Whirlwind on the base - though the box (not included) specifies Pipemaster. This lighter was made only in England and was touted as "Specifically designed for the pipe smoker, this handsome lighter has extra fuel capacity and a telescopic windshield for outdoor use".

The bottom of this lighter reads "Ronson Trademark Whirlwind Made in England Brit Pat 6215".

This lighter is being sold in used condition. As you can see from the pictures it is showing signs of its age. It has scuffs, scratches, and discoloring from use. This model is rare and hard to find in the United States.

This lighter has a brand new flint, it sparks great, it just needs to be filled with fluid.

A wonderful addition to your collection or as gift.

"There's nothing like a Ronson!" They are built dependable to give you years of faithful lights.
