While this lighter looks like the KEM, it isn't! The KEM is not as well made as this one. See the Another View photos and you'll quickly note the differences.

Designed to look like a cigarette and fit into a regular size cigarette pack so it would be handy. Could also be used in a King size pack, but was somewhat short for that.

Italian Swiss Colony Golden State Bottle Striker Lighter

possibly by Schiller c. 1915. This lighter is a very close match for a Ronson Wonderliter. The difference is that this one has a wand with the flint embedded in the wand and the bottle has a plate to scratch the flint against to produce a spark. The Ronson version has a flint strip on the bottle with metal on the wand to produce the spark. Size, shape, and bottle label are identical.

Novelty Playing Cards Piezoelectric Lighter

Using the thumb, the cards are "slid" to the side - much as you would do with a hand of cards. This causes the piezoelectric spark and release of gas to get a fire.

Solar Lighter

Had a spate of popularity from several companies from the mid 1970s - mid 1980s. Very slight variations are still being sold.

On a sunny day these light a cigarette almost as quickly as a flame - especially if there is a little wind - which helps the Solar Lighter. See the picture 'Light Up' below.
