Elgin American Lite-O-Matic Cigarette Case 1940s Great Working Condition
This wonderful 1940's Lite-O-Matic Elgin American cigarette case lighter comes with an ultra suede pouch and is in beautiful cosmetic working condition.
The case is in fabulous condition, with no dents, rust or corrosion; just some ever so slight scuffs mostly on the back side. 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.
An interesting and lovely unisex piece to add to your collection, or give as a gift. It has a new flint installed. Visit our shop to find many other vintage working lighters and case lighters.
