Description

This is a very unusual table lighter.

Made from solid sterling silver, it is clearly hallmarked on the side for London 1910 with the mark of the famous and highly collectable silversmith, William Comyns.

It is bulbous in shape on a round pedestal base. The two handles are firmly attached.

The central raised spout is just over 1cm in diameter. The top of this is removed to allow the lighter fuel to be poured in and then replaced with a wick which can be lit when required. The lid has a pretty beaded edge and a partial hallmark.

On either side of this central spout are two smaller holes and these hold 'torches' which have openings on the bottom to attach smaller wicks, to light the cigarettes/cigars. Each of the torches is fashioned as an axe and each has a partial hallmark to one side.

Dimensions:
Height to top of spout (excluding 'lid'): 6.5cm
Diameter of top (excluding handles): 6cm
Weight: 108g

An excellent and very collectable example of fine workmanship from this famous silversmith.
