Ever Squeeze Type Lighter

Ever Squeeze Type Lighter

Gloric Lighter

c. 1955 This is a petrol lighter with a liquid fuel tank (no cotton or wadding - just lighter fluid) and a 'carburetor system' instead of a standard wick. The carburetor is surrounded by a fiberglass wick for the flame. This part (metallic center and fiberglass wick) moves back down into the body of the lighter when the lighter is closed rather than remaining in a stationary position as with a normal wick. Over many years I have used a lot of lighters. This is far and away the best lighter I have ever used! It lights every time and the lighter fluid lasts 'forever' in it.

Ready (From TCW)

Ready Squeeze Type Lighter

c. 1935 These have an unusual filling method in that the top of the tank - where the wick is - is pulled out for filling (see pictures). This does make it very easy to change the wick, when necessary!
