1940's Elgin American Lite-O-Matic Cigarette Case Lighter Working Condition
A ladies wonderful excellent condition 1940's unique design Lite-O-Matic Elgin American cigarette case lighter that is in fantastic condition.
It has serious damage, no rust or corrosion; just some light scuffs and one tiny pin point ding on the back near the edge, that is barely noticeable. This case is really lovely inside and out. It measures 5 inches in length by 3 1/2 inches in width.
The lighter was tested and works perfectly, the only thing this piece will need is fluid, as we are unable to ship through the postal system with flammable liquids inside.
It has a very unusual way of working. You press a button on the front edge and the case pops open, and when you close the case it automatically lights the lighter. The back side of the case does have a slider locking mechanism for child safety, or for when you want to open the case without the lighter lighting.
This piece is hallmarked "ELGIN AMERICAN Made In USA" on the inside clip.
The beautiful and rare pattern is what makes this case so charming. It comes in an ivory organza gift pouch.
What an interesting and unique piece to add to your collection, or give as a gift.
