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 has around 100 of these type of lighters. But, I do have some more vintage electric lighters to add. So I might split this gallery up and add another gallery for the electric lighters. Enjoy and Happy Hunting!

In this gallery of vintage lighters, you'll see some 1920's and 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 top. 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 in to the wall outlet, and some you can plug in to a table lamp or hanging lamp bulb socket. The Tobacco electric lighter in this gallery can be plugged in to a table lamp socket, a hanging lamp socket, or wall outlet. Came with a plug adapter. These electric cigar/cigarette lighters were not cheap lighters back in the day, (early 20's and 30's) and I would say, for the well to do folks.

On the right is a vintage electric table lighter, and might be consider an antique by most. The base is nice onyn stone with a brass figuar of a culer player. In good working condition and is 5" tall. This type doesn't come around very offent. One could say it's on the rare side.

I also have a few 1920's or 30's Silent Flame lighters. Which are also part of the... Electric Lighter Family. Featuring the hard to find Parker with the round base that works off batteries.

If I would have brought these with me when I moved in 2004, instead of leaving them in storage, I may have got back in to collecting lighters sooner! I forgot I had this many electric lighters! These are some of my favorite lighters to collect. And yes, I've added a couple to my collection.

These vintage electric lighters can be repaired to work again or you can do it yourself. Changing the cord is the easy part, kinda. The guy who repairs these sells the kits on eBay. He also has a video on YouTube on how this is done... MICO and EAGLE electric lighter repair. More info on the right. I'll be sending him one that doesn't work soon.

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.
