Vintage 1959 Ronson Varaflame Futura Chrome Speed Boat Table Lighter Art Deco For Sale
Offered here for your offerding consideration is this vintage Ronson chrome Varaflame Futura speed boat butane gas table lighter with sleek Art Deco styling! I have found this model advertised in a 1959 Life magazine publication where it was touted as "the table lighter you fill once a year!" Measuring 5 3/4" long by 2" tall, it is made of a heavy metal and entirely chrome plated. I know little about lighters and have not checked to see if this one works. All the moving parts including the flint wheel seem to be operating as they should. Most of the chrome is in very good condition, with minute scuffs and scratches from use and handling that I could see only with magnification. On the bow, or front deck of the boat, the chrome finish exhibitstiny bubbles and crazing on the surface, perhaps from the heat of the flame, as photographed. I think it would have had a chrome plug in the back where the butanecan befilled, now missing. it is a very attractive mid-century piece, made by a well known and respected manufacturer. Please see my other listings for more antique and vintage finds, keeping in mind that I would be happy to combine shipping whenever practical!
