Vintage Pocket Lighters

Well... it looks like I'm back in to my vintage lighter collection again! I've added some more vintage pocket lighters to this gallery, and may add another pocket lighter gallery at some point? I also added a couple of new galleries of vintage lighters.

first pocket lighter

Located on the right, and is the main show piece of my pocket lighters. We have an antique Koopman's Magic Pocket Lamp Lighter. Some experts say, this was the first pocket lighter made. These did not use flints, it had a circular paper insert with caps. I think they may have had at least 24 caps per insert. When the button was pushed, the lid would pop open, making the inside disc rotate, creating a small spark of fire, and lighting the wick. It used kerosene, gasoline or naptha for fuel. You can see an inside view below.

The magic pocket lamp was used to light lamps, gas burners, cigars, and could also light up a dark room. They had 3 different models. Single side button which is seen here, double side button, (which is very rare and hard to find) and a heavy engraved single side button. These were also called a cap lighter.

cigarette dispenser box

I have also added a few vintage cigarette dispensers, in most of the vintage lighter galleries as you will see.

The one on the left was hand made/painted in Northern Italy. The head on the women moves up and turns to the side, when the lever on the back is pressed, and the lids pops up. This would hold non filter cigarettes. 4" x 6". Could have been used for other things as well. I just might, put them altogether on one page?
