Vintage Electric Cigarette-Cigar Table Lighters



We're proud to say... this may be the largest collection of vintage electric cigarette and cigar table lighters, you'll find on the internet. Not the largest by no means. I know of a collector that said he has around 100 of these type of lighters. Instead of adding more to this gallery, I added another gallery of vintage art deco electric lighters. Enjoy and Happy Hunting!

On the right we have.... vintage chalkware piece from the 40's or 50's featuring a sea sailor or fisherman, electric lighter that mounts on a wall. Has a working pipe to light a cigar or a cigarette, and the glass eyes also glow when the button is held for a few seconds. I have only seen a few of these and they were a bronze color with a wood backing. This one is not bronze and no wood backing. The buttons I have seen were on the chin, this one is not. No brand name.

In this gallery of vintage lighters, you'll see some 1920's-30's Vintage electric cigarette-cigar table lighters, and soon to be... antique electric lighters. These type of electric lighters would sit on a table or desk. Some you can pick up and it will light by holding it sideways, some have a push button to light it up. Most of these lighters plug into the wall outlet, and some you can plug into a table lamp or hanging lamp bulb socket.

I also have a few 1930's Silent Flame lighters. Which are also part of the... Electric Lighter Family, but these work off batteries. Featuring the hard to find Parker with the round base.

Lighter Repair Service

As a special service to collectors, I restore and or repair electric lighters. MICO and EAGLE type electric lighters can usually be rebuilt for $30.00 plus $7.25 Priority shipping back to you. I can only rebuild lighter with the internal parts still intact. The ceramic part is critical, there are no replacements the ceramic insulator.

Most other lighters repairs are similarly priced. If the wire on your lighter needs to be replaced and soldered to the mechanism, there are two options. The first is adding 6 feet of standard 18 gauge lamp cord wire using your plug (add $5.00). The second is 6 feet of more authentic rayon wrapped 18 gauge wire using your plug (add $15.00). Please include your phone # and or your e-mail address with payment in case I have a question or suggestion.

The Silent Flame

These are also know as touch tips, which was the most common name for them. These particular lighters takes two D cell batteries located in the base. The wand is removed and laid on one of the wires and the tip is touched against the statuette. This completes the electrical circuit with the batteries and causes a small coil in the tip of the wand to heat up enough to ignite a cigarette.

Why does the Dunhill and Parker silent flames, look the same? The Parker company was founded in 1928 by Alfred Dunhill. Parker lighters was for a different group of customers than the Dunhill customers. They sold their lighters at a lower cost. The quality of Parker lighters was still very good, same as Dunhill's. They were made in the same factories, and used the same material. You paid more for Dunhill, because of the name.
