Ronson Art Deco Black Bartender TouchTip Lighter
This is a large Ronson Touch Tip art deco lighter in the shape of a bar with the figure of a black bartender behind it. ca 1936 this lighter is specially made for Ronson by the Artmetal Works Inc., of Newark NJ. It is the companion piece of the Barmaid Ronson which I also have listed on my website here. It is not politically correct but it is rare and hard to find! The bar is part chrome and the front of the bar appears to be faux tortoiseshelll. If you tilt the cocktail shakers or glasses on each side a compartment opens and lift the stored cigarettes upwards. It is in excellent complete condition with paint condition almost complete and even with the original felt on the bottom, you don't find them like this very often!
