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!

old man electric lighter

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, the glass eyes also glow when the button on his chin, 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 on these, are located on the chin, this one is not. No brand name/maker.

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.

Below you'll see one of my - now favorite electric lighters, made by USALite. I'm also big on the USALite brand flashlights, with over 110 in my collection. Now I have a lighter by'em. Perfect fit. Really don't think I will ever get, that many electric lighters by USALite. This may be the only one?

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.
