VINTAGE A.S.R. HERITAGE 2 PC COPPER W/ BAKELITE HANDLE LIGHTER CIGARETTE SET
VINTAGE ASR A.S.R. HERITAGE 2 PC COPPER W/ BAKELITE HANDLE LIGHTER CIGARETTE SET
Made with solid copper that looks like a kettle on three legs and with Bakelite handles.
Manufactured between 1949 and 1953 by the American Safety Razor Co. in the United States (Brooklyn, New York). The set consists of a lighter & cigarette holder and is very sought after set due to its unusual design and the black Bakelite handles. There is a nifty little lever on the side near to top of the lighter that when depressed clicks open the lighter and in turn stikes the flint and wheel to ignite it. Marked ASR on bottom and says tarnish resistant copper.
The condition is very good. The is some tarnish on the copper surface. The lighter will need fuel and general cleaning up.
