ANTIQUE SILVER CIGAR LIGHTERS

Although the earliest known lighter is from around 1820, it wasn't until the Victorian period, and with the increase in popularity for smoking, that Silversmiths started to create both table and pocket lighters, to replace vesta cases and matches. Novelty examples in the form of animals, or buildings, are amongst the rarest and most sought after.
