Description
A super rare English, solid silver cigar lighter, modelled in the form of a Louis Wain style grinning cat. It is hallmarked for 1906 and the makers mark is partly obscured. You would have filled the body with paraffin and a wick would have been threaded through his tail. There would have been a larger central lighter in the centre of a table and you would have lit this from that then passed it round. Measures 2.5"/6.5cm high.
