I love the colors bursting from this pristine, new-old-stock (NOS) Firefly pocket lighter. Manufactured in Japan probably during the late 1950s, this chrome automatic pocket lighter features a vivid Japanese vignette on the front face that melds depictions of Mount Fuji, cherry blossoms, temples, and a contour out the Japan islands. I've not found much information about these sorts "Memory Of Japan" pieces, but assume they were designed as souvenirs. This beautiful piece has no imperfections I can see; it is in pristine condition. It had never been used before my test firing. The wick is still white, the spark wheel is clean, there is no char on the snuffer or wick housing. This piece is literally in new, working condition.

This a fully automatic lighter that functions just like a Ronson Standard. Depress the plunger to strike and light the wick, release to extinguish the flame. Flint and fluid are both added from the base. This would be an excellent everyday lighter. It will be shipped with a new Zippo flint and without fluid. (If you don't plan to use this lighter occasionally, I recommend removing the flint so it does not deteriorate and become impacted over time.) I've provided high quality photos to offer the best preview of this Japanese lighter. Please take a look and feel free to ask any questions.
