Colibri is one of only a handful of vintage lighter manufacturers still producing lighters today. Though generally consider a British company, Colibri was founded in Germany during the late 1920s, then the company moved to London in 1933. Over their 80+ year history, the Colibri introduced several pivotal new technologies to the lighter industry. I've pasted a link below to a quick and informative slide show on Colibri's website about their history.

This collection pairs together three Colibri butane pocket models intended for display only. They are being sold "as-is" and are not working properly. I've provided high quality photos and brief descriptions of each lighter below to offer the best preview of this mini collection. Please take a look and feel free to ask any questions. From left to right as shown in photo #1, they are:

- A rich, gold-toned Electro Flame 52 with piezo electric ignition system. It works sometimes, but is erratic and unreliable.

- A chrome finish Colibri 81 Quarzo from the late 1960s with piezo electric ignition system. It does not leak and sparks, but does not light.

- A Colibri By Kreisler made in post-World War 2 West Germany, with worn gold finish and fully automatic flint-based firing system. It sparks and works well, but has a slow gas leak and only holds a charge for a day or so.
