Vintage Electric Cigarette-Cigar Table Lighters #2

duralectric cigar lighter

On the right is a working, 1920's or 1930's Duralectric cigar automatic lighter. The base is made from pressed steel, with a hand rubbed grained mahogany finish. The microphone shape head is made from nickel. To operate press the white button and hold for a few seconds.

From an ad I saw, (the midget) this would be the commercial size that you would find in the high class hotels, clubs and tobacco stores. They also had a smaller size, known as the Midget, for the home or at the office, which would be plugged into a lamp socket, sitting on a table or desk. This one plugs into a wall socket. Manufactured by Duralectric Corp. Pittsburgh, PA. USA. 6" tall x 3 1/4" wide. It's a heavy piece.

This is my latest find... and a nice one! Early Pirate Electric Lighter. This might be... just that one more? Take a look at the big view. I need to replace the cord to get it working.

1928 LD Bloch & C0. Pirate Electric lighter. Made of cast iron. 11" tall and 3 1/2" wide at the base, which is a treasure chest. Weights a little over 3 pounds. This would be bolted to a counter top in a cigar store. The lighter sits on top of the treasure chest, and has a retractable cord on the lighter.

This is the second gallery of vintage electric lighters I have to share with you. Again, you'll see these came in different styles, shapes and colors from the early 20's through the 50's. That brings us to over 60 vintage electric lighters to share with you. If I find any more, I'll have to add another gallery. I hope to stop at...? Just one more!

Electric Lighters

Electric table lighters was a danger to have sitting around the house. I'm sure some might have even caused a fire when knocked over. The ones that you tilt to light, once knocked over and landing on the table or the floor, could start a fire inside the house.

The push button electric table lighters was much safer. Some electric lighters came with a safety device that once knocked over, it wouldn't work. See below.
