Elgin American Beauty Magic Action Cigarette Case Lighter In Fabulous Working Condition 1940 Gold Tone
Here's a fantastic 1940's Elgin American Beauty Lite-O-Matic cigarette case lighter that is in excellent working condition. It appears as though it wasn't used.
The case is in fabulous condition, with no dents, rust or corrosion; just some extremely faint scuffs mostly on the back side. This case is really lovely inside and out. Both sides have the same linear pattern and blank cartouches.
It measures approximately 5 inches in length by 3 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 edge and the case opens, and when you close the case it automatically lights the lighter. 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 "American Beauty Magic Action", as well as "ELGIN AMERICAN Made In USA" on the inside clips. It has clips on either side of the case to hold more cigarettes, or you could use one side for cash or credit cards.
What a wonderful piece to add to your collection, or give as a gift.
