is a nifty little cigarette lighter that most likely was made in the 1950's. The brand name is Cont-Lite and it is marked on the bottom "Made in Occupied Japan". It is currently non functioning. I can imagine it would need a flint and some fuel if someone really wanted to use it. The fuel is added through the lens hole. It has a cute folding tripod and t is also a very small compass mounted in the front. It seems like a great item for the collector of vintage cameras and won't take up much space. Best of all, shipping is FREE for US buyers.
