Description

Stunning Asprey of London officers mess table grenade lighter. Full hallmark for the Birmingham assay office and the date letter for 1914. Unusual shape top where the wick comes through.
Great shape and excellent quality as you'd expect from Asprey. The top screws off to fill the lighter and also change the wick. The tradition of these lighters was that they could be thrown down the table when lit and because of the weighting in the base they would always stay upright.

Happy answer any questions.

Will be sent to you in a tissue lined gift box.
