Dunhill Vintage Tinder Pistol Lighter. Genuine. Pat. No.592139. This Is Not Fake:
Vintage Dunhill tinder flintlock pistol table lighter. Patent number 529139. Genuine, not a fake.This is an enormous old table lighter, from the estate of a Dunhill lighter collector & new to the market.Predominantly brass & wood, mahogany I think, which both have a lovely age related patina.There is a spare flint in the storage space above the pistol grip, covered with red felt. Please see photos.The almost mint condition of this piece suggests it has always been kept for display by the previous owner & maybe never used. It does however spark where it should when trigger is pulled, appears complete, & would no doubt work if the square tank above the pat. no. were filled with petrol.I'm no expert but can find no faults. No modern cross head screws.A heavy 319g, over 14cms long, 10cms tall!An unusual, rare survivor.
Offered at a ridiculous start price with . Please see my other silver & gold items.
