Up for bid is this beautiful Vintage Brass Art Deco WW1 WW2 French Trench Lighter. This lighter has a beautiful Art Deco lined design on the out side. It is about 2 1/2" long and 1 1/8" wide. There is a noticeable dent on one side near the bottom (pic) and the usual usage scratches on the top and bottom. The striking wheel on top spins fine but the flint is either gone or worn so it does not spark. The wick that looks to be cotton is on top and there is plenty of back up wicks inside of the lighter when you pull it out of the bottom casing.(Pic). I could not find any makers marks, but the person I got this from said they got this when they lived in France. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
