Vintage Ronson ESCORT cigarette lighter/cigarette case combo. Seems to be either a stainless steel or chromium exterior with an art deco graphic design on the interior. Quite hefty. Interior T-shaped spring bracket holds 10 regular size cigarettes. Lighter slides out to the right to add flint or fluid. Very nice condition with normal wear from use. The spring in the T-shaped bracket is tight and the exterior snap closure works nicely. I have not attempted to fill this with fluid to see if it works, but the wick and all other parts seem to be in fine condition. I believe this was made in the 1950's or 1960's. Bottom of slide-out lighter portion marked " Ronson R, (trademark R in a circle) Newark, N.J., USA, US Patent 2,481,195." Clasp on case is marked " R Ronson 4 ". T-bracket is marked "Ronson". Inside of case marked " R Ronson Escort". Measures 4-3/4 inches by 3-1/4 inches.I try and describe my items accurately and honestly, and strive for you to receive a product that meets or exceeds your expectations. If this is not the case, please let me know immediately, and I'll make it right - - one way or the other ! PAYMENT: I accept PayPal, money orders, personal checks,and cashiers checks. I appreciate receiving payment immediately, or at the latest, within 2 days of auction close. I will ship your item usually the same day payment is received. SHIPPING: I ship most everything via USPS (United States Post Office) but will use UPS or Fed Ex as necessary for large or heavy items. I generally charge actual shipping costs only and do not add any handling or packaging fees on domestic shipping. I am always glad to combine shipping charges on multiple auction items - - please email me first before making payment so I can give you revised shipping costs with your invoice total. Insurance is at your option, but I can't be responsible for uninsured losses or breakage. RETURNS: Must be returned within 7 days. Buyer pays return shipping costs. OVERSEAS OR INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: I want to make all of my auction items available to international buyers, and will ship via International Priority Mail, or International Express at your request. I DO NOT ship via International First Class. (Ebay and the US Post Office do not allow, at present, Ebay sellers to print International First Class postage on-line, and thus all such mail must be taken in person to the post office). At present, I DO charge a $7.50 handling fee on all international shipments, and this is reflected in your total on the Ebay automatic postage calculator.
