The Lowenthal Brothers started the Colibri automatic tobacco lighter business in Germany in the early 1900's, but in 1935 at the onset of WWII, fled to England. They returned to Germany after the war, and are credited with making some of the most elaborate, decorative and mechanically reliable lighters in the business.

This unique Gold & Ebony Lighter Colibri by Kreisler is just one very rare example of the Lowenthal's work. We found this in an estate nearly 40 years ago, and it has been in my personal collection, on display, for all that time. When I decided to list it here, I cleared the flint tube and replaced the flint. There was still butane in the tank after all these years and the lighter fired right up!! It is in near new, close to mint condition, no leaking seals,  with flared golden feathered decorations over beautiful unscratched black enameling. Definitely mid-century with an art deco like look. 6 inches tall. 2 inches wide at widest point. This vintage Colibri table lighter is working but will require a butane charge eventually. If your vintage lighter is used for display, please remove the flint, as they do degrade. Sales to the lower 48 only.

This one will ship for $8.95 insured/delivery confirmation. We accept personal checks and Paypal. Item ships carefully and immediately upon cleared payment. Please see our other unique vintage table and pocket lighters by clicking "Storefront" at the top right side of this page - we have lots of other great stuff listed there too. Whether for display or every day use - if you are going to spend the money, why not buy one that still works? Thanks for taking a look.
