Capitol

The Capitol Lighter

From c. mid-1920s The Capitol Lighter was made in a single version of the lighter itself, which is really just a mechanism (see Patents). However, the lighter shows up in a number of treatments as a table lighter. To the right is one of the earliest Capitol Lighters which is marked 'Patent Apl For' and that dates it to being made prior to deciding on what patent to use. The patent marking always shows up on the thumb lever of the lighter. The original design for this lighter was by Josef Kluss who patented it in Austria (see Austrian patent) in 1925 (filed 11/07/1923), but not in the U.S. Steele & Johnson Mfg. of Waterbury CT produced the lighter in the U.S. as the Capitol Lighter and used an old U.S. patent (Sept 17, 2012) which had similarities but was not the same. So the 'real patent' for this lighter is the 1925 Austrian patent, not the 1912 US patent.

The lighter to the right also has what I believe to be the best base made for it - a beautiful cast brass (possibly bronze) base with an ashtray and a swimmer in relief. For filling, the lighter is removed from the top of the bottle. Other later versions (marked with patent date) are shown below - frequently these have bent levers for sparking the lighter.

Casco

Bridgeport, CT

Casco Lift Arm Lighter

This is an especially nice lift arm lighter as everything is covered and enclosed - much more 'pocket friendly' than the usual lift arm! On the down side, the very thin thumb wheel makes it difficult to operate the striker wheel.
