Cigarette Lighter Vintage Marbo-Lite Pocket Lighter Purse Lighter 1950s Mid Century Lighter Made in Japan Excellent Working Condition


This is a circa 1950s Marbo-Lite Cigarette Lighter in Black Enamel and Chrome in Excellent Working Condition. The front features a classic Mid Century Modern design of raised chrome with a black enamel fill. The cartouche is clean (not engraved). The back is a solid field of black enamel. All other surfaces are finished in chrome. The bottom is clean with no scratches. Overall, this lighter is in Excellent Working Condition; it was used sparingly, if at all. There are no nicks, dents, dings, rust or corrosion anywhere. It has a new flint, it sparks and it lights. All that is required is lighter fuel. It is hallmarked on the front at the trigger yoke "MARBO-LITE". It is also hallmarked on the bottom "MARBO LITE HIGH QUALITY" and "MARBO LITE STANDARD EXCELLENT AUTOMATIC LIGHTER SERVE YOURSELF" which places the manufacture in the 1950s. The lighter measures 1 1/8 inch wide by 1 15/16 inches tall by 9/16 inch thick.

This classic 1950s Marbo-Lite Lighter would make a terrific addition to someone's collection of Mid Century Tobacciana, a great display piece in a Mad Men vignette, or be put to immediate use.
