This is a vintage cigarette lighter with a solid silver hinged case. It measures about 1 7/16" (not including hinge) x 2 1/4" and is stamped MADE IN ITALY on the bottom and 800 with an illegible maker’s mark inside the top. It is nicely engraved with scrolls, flowers and flourishes. The lighter doesn’t work (no spark, no fluid). It has a patent number stamped on the side: 43912. The case hadn’t been opened in years - after I took the lighter out for the photograph it wouldn’t close all the way as may be seen in the photo.
Condition: It is tarnished and has small dents and surface scratches and slight damage to the lower edge of the top. The lighter is not working as already mentioned.
