Vintage Cigarette - Cigar Lighters
The vintage lighter section has been revised. So, if this is your first time here in the Vintage Lighters section, nothing has changed. If you've been here before, I've made some changes. It's been way too long! I've added a new gallery of vintage Novelty table lighters and my vintage electric lighters. I added a few more vintage table lighters to the first table gallery, added a few pocket lighters and you'll see some vintage cigarette accessories on a couple of pages. With that said... We now have over 135 vintage lighters to share with you! The Hunt Has Started...
On the right is two unusual vintage Geometric Strike-A-Lite lighters. One has a nice culluloid body and an interesting mechanism that works great. Stands 4 inches tall and about 1 1/2 inches wide. The other Strike-A-Lite is a little shorter and has riders with dogs hunting scenes on all sides. That one one also has a culluiod body. Very nice.
Just got some more of my vintage lighter collection back, finally. So this... 'Sparks Up' my interest in antique and vintage lighters again. I'll be adding a few at a time in some of the galleries I have on now, and will be show-casing my cigar/cigarette electric table lighters in a gallery that I just added. Now that I have these back and cleaned up, I really like'em and want more electric lighters? I did some checking on these, and... the prices have gone way up! So maybe, I'll be happy with what I already have?
I'll also be adding some vintage accessiores as in... matchbook holders, match safe holders, cigarette holders, flint cards and things that go with collecting cigarette and cigar lighters, and maybe some vintage ads with another gallery of Novelty Table Lighters just for fun. I'm almost sure I'll need to add another gallery for Table Lighters and Pocket Lighters soon!
Also, I have my old lighter price catalog from 1995 with 140 pages with some good information and photos of different vintage and aubtiqe lighters. A little out-dated, but, this should help me date some of the lighters better and help with the value. But, just like all collectibles, worth over value. But a great starting point. If I really get interested in lighters again, I'll be buying another catalog that was issued in 2015. I just ordered one!
