Gesch Aluminum Table Lighter On Wheels

This is a strange lighter on wheels that do roll... for no apparent reason. Circa late 1940s or early 1950s a fairly standard aluminum block lighter - aside from the unique design.

Jet Line Candle Lighter

Late 1940s. This is an interesting and unusual lighter, as much for the designers as the design. Rather than having a base with a simple tube lighter stuck in it, this glass based lighter uses the whole base as a fuel reservoir and has a unique wicking mechanism - long time between refills! A tube covers a large "padded" area adjacent to and containing the actual wick; the bottom of the tube has holes so the fluid can be absorbed into this padded area. Some models of this lighter, though identical, have "Designed by Sydney Weston" on the glass bottom; others do not. While Sydney Weston did the basic design, it was assigned to Rose Eratico. Eratico designed the rest of the lighter and holds the patents for it. The candle top lifts off to reveal the lighter.

Globe Peep Show Lighter

This chrome and leather pocket lighter has a small view port in the front. By holding the lighter in front of a light and looking through the peep hole you can see bathing suit clad ladies. Turning the small wheel on the back rotates through a number of images. The small wheel on the back is very fragile, thin plastic and must be handled carefully to avoid damage. early 1950s. SEE: Oriental (brand name) Peep Show lighter to see inner workings.

Viso-Liter Vu Lighter

c. mid-late 1940s For flint change the striker wheel assembly pulls out of the body (not very easily) with a turn. There is no retaining screw for the spring - it is held in place when the flint wheel is locked down in its compartment. Filling is also unique: The spout of a fluid container pushes the fill valve in to allow fluid to flow into the tank - see pictures. The 'Globe' logo is inside the top cover.

Good Items Camel Aluminum Block Lighter

c. late 1940s My best guess as to why they called this lighter the "Camel" is that it has dual fuel tanks with a hole drilled between the two so fluid can migrate between them - however, since there is no packing in the hole, that likelihood seems weak when it comes to actual performance. Still a nice Machine Age lighter.
