This is a table lighter from 1960 celebrating the 25th anniversary of the well known "Partridge Club" in NYC: "The Partridge Club was formed in 1935 at the Victoria Hotel in New York City. The membership was made up of leading purveyors to the hotel, club and restaurant trade. Charter President was Henry G. Duvernoy and Charter Secretary-Treasurer was Arthur Simmons. In the early Forties, a few dissatisfied members left and formed the Invitation Club. Things went well for both Clubs until the crackdown on business expenses during the Presidency of Lyndon Johnson (1963-1969). Membership declined in both Clubs and committees were formed to explore the possibilities of a merger. After much dickering and negotiating, the merger was implemented in 1967. The deal was the Invitation Club would have its President become the first President, if the Partridge name preceded the Invitation name. Thus, the name Partridge-Invitation Club of New York, Inc. A scholarship program was established and it grew so fast that in 1988 the Club's name was changed to the Partridge-Invitation Scholarship Foundation, Inc., to better describe its mission. " The lighter measures 3" across by 2-1/2" high. It is in very good condition and is still sparking fine needing only fuel for use. Shipped with flint, but not fueled, as per postal regulations. This one ships anywhere in lower 48 for $9.95, insured, and deliver confirmation. A great vintage lighter and piece of New York City memorabilia. A welcome addition to your advertising or lighter collection. Plenty of more pix available, and questions promptly answered. Sales to the lower 48 only. We accept personal checks and Paypal - your item is carefully packed and shipped immediately upon cleared payment.
