Dunhill London Solid Silver Horn Lighter 1937 Museum Piece. 12" Long Like Tusk For Sale

Dunhill London Solid Silver Horn Lighter 1937 Museum Piece. 12

*** Possibly one of the rarest of all DUNHILL lighters ever produced!!! ***1937 DUNHILL "Horn" Lighter
This is the crown jewel of my lifelong lighter collection. I have been an avid collector and enthusiast for almost 25 years.I'm very sad to have to part ways with this, as I know I'll never see it or another like it again (unless you sell it back to me down the road).The person who buys this will know just how rare it is. This is the only known example to my (and many other collector's) knowledge.
I have emailcorrespondence withZia Fernandez-Ibarreche, of the Dunhill museum, which confirms the lighters authenticity and rarity.There was nocatalogue illustration of the lighter, but there is an illustration in the 1937 catalogue of both the "Tusk" and "Horn" cigar cutters. (available with email contact)
The Lighter was made in the "Bando" workshop.Fully Hallmarked with "AD" and London marks for 1937Patent number: 405122, The patent for the lighter's mechanism was bought from Cartier by dunhill.There is also a serial(?) number "2C 176" etched on the bottom of the lighter's table.Unfortunately many of Dunhill's records were destroyed in the carpet bombings of WWII and more info about for whom this was made etc., may be gone forever... pity.
The Ligher measures 11 1/2" long and is made from some kind of Antelope horn.The insert is solid silver with gold finish.Double thumb-wheel action is nice and smoothThe cap snaps tightly with a nice pingStrong spark and flint mechanism.-See the condition window for more condition info-
*I have lots of extra pictures if you'd like to see any particular details.I've taken the photos with Flash on, and off, for depth of color and clarity.
Because this is a very high dollar item, I will not be accepting offers from anyone withoutverified paypal address.0 response buyers may have their offers canceled.International buyers welcome but must pay any and all import taxes and will not hold me responsible for customs delays or seizures. Modest reserve set.
