BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE EMPIRE STERLING SILVER TABLE LIGHTER
BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE EMPIRE STERLING SILVER TABLE LIGHTER. It is 3.5" high. It is a beautiful footed pedestal base with an insert, On the bottom is is marked empire sterling weighted , 400. And very faintly there is a the letter etched in "GLE". The chrome lighter insert is an Evans lighter from Japan, It fits perfectly so I assume that the Empire company may have used the Evans insert. I have not tested the lighter. It will need fuel and probably a new flint.
There are some faind ding and a few scratches to the sterling base.
