1950s Camera Lighter in Original Box


Shipping to United States: Free

Occupied Japan 1950's figural camera-shaped lighter made by the CMC company. Complete with tripod stand and extremely rare extra-long shutter trigger along with the original packaging. The lighter uses a semi-automatic mechanism triggered by the button on top. Lighter is filled through the removal of the camera lens to expose the packing. Amazing condition for the age. Make sure that the lighter is set to "Open" when using the trigger, which screws onto the trigger button. Great set.

This vintage lighter was disassembled, cleaned, and rebuilt with a new flint/packing, and any needed replacement parts. Good working order - lights consistently. Wonderful vintage condition. Awesome display piece. Approximately 4" inches tall x 2 1/2" wide x 3/4" deep on stand. 1 7/8 inches tall without the stand attachment.

All work performed by The Northern Electric Lighting Company, NC.

As per shipping regulations, lighter will be shipped without fluid. Just fill with Zippo or Ronsonol lighter fluid to operate.
