Cartier for Dunhill Unique Sports lighter
Price Code: £££
A superior Sterling silver Unique Sports lighter, circa 1930s, owing its origins to an imaginative Anglo-French affiliation between Dunhill and Cartier, whose commitment to quality on both sides of the Channel (and beyond) is second to none. The liftarm is marked DUNHILL and the base imprinted CARTIER, SWISS MADE, and STERLING. The face of the lighter is suitably decked with three maritime signalling flags, denoting the letters H.P.L, the initials of the fortunate recipient of this clearly, bespoke commission. Complete with a tooled green leather Cartier presentation case.
Length: 5½ inches (14 cm)
