Sterling silver lighter by Cartier, 1930s
Price Code: £££
An extremely rare – and most likely a special commission – Sterling silver table lighter made by Cartier, and heavily influenced by the design of Dunhill’s ‘Giant’ table lighter. The straight-sided lighter with a beautiful and ornate monogram (removable if required) to the front, has a flat lift-arm stamped CARTIER and STERLING, and a hand-knurled flint wheel. The lighter is complete with a tooled red leather presentation case. This is the only example of this type of lighter that we have ever seen. French, circa 1930s.
