    Ronson Lighter ; Updated to More then I ever Expected

    This is not a Recent find,
    But I decided to put a New Flint in it &
    Fill it with Fluid.
    And it works Great.

    Can anyone Date it by the Patent Numbers ?
    Or at least tell me how old it Could
    be at the Oldest ?

    Re: Can you date this Ronson Lighter ?

    The second U.S. patent was granted in 1935, after being filed in 1927.

    http://www.google.com/patents?id=2Ol...A23&dq=2002845

    See the second and third lighters on the following page, which have some or all of the same patent numbers and are listed as c. 1940's.

    Thanks PBK & Nick

    The Shape Does look Closest to the "FINE LINE" Design.

    Re: Can you date this Ronson Lighter ?

    It's Got all those Colors Like maybe there was a
    Scene painted on it.

    But the Green, I am almost sure is Tarnish

    However it also Looks like it may have had a Plastic or Leather
    Coating at one time like some of the others Pictured.
    that has Rotted off
    and it is now down to Metal.

    It was Dug out of a Freshly Drained Lake Bottom
    about 5 Years ago.

    Re: Can you date this Ronson Lighter ?

    Jeff,

    The reason I ask is I have a Ronson Queen Anne table lighter I found in an old garage some time ago . It was dated early 1950 but is sterling and it still works.

    Re: Can you date this Ronson Lighter ?

    Jeff: I haven't been around the stuff for awhile but Heublein and Arrow are both liquor brands. In the 70's Heublein distributed a cocktail in a can..stuff like harvey wallbanger, screwdriver, etc. and Arrow had liquors like triple sec, peppermint schnapps, etc. Believe I've seen Ronsons with The Land Of Skyblue Waters-Hamm's Beer painted on the side. Not your answers but maybe leads.

    Re: Can you date this Ronson Lighter ?

    Alright, I really stink at this but...... I think the fine line 1934 is a match? It has the same configuration and was coated with enamel. What do you think?

    Dog. . . that lighter brings back HUGE memories from when I was a kid. . . my parents had one EXACTLY like it that they kept on the coffee table in the living room. My mother hated it because it was silver and she had to keep polishing it every month or so. I don't know what's become of it now though.

    Re: Can you date this Ronson Lighter ?

    Jeff,

    Didn't post it to sell it, It is the only one I have that isn't a zippo.
    Your Ronson brought it to mind.

    Nick,
    Have no idea what It weighs but it's empty now and it sure is heavy.

    Watercolor,
    Now that you mention it This one seems to drag up a 5 or 6 year old in my own mind.
    But dimly as both my parents quit smoking when I was that age.

    These are all really amazing.
    You guys find some terrific stuff.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Jeff,
    That old Ronson is one I would enjoy seeing in person some day.
    Really sent my memory tumbling.
    Funny the things that can trigger those things.
    Thankyou my friend.
    Glad you found it.
    Thanks again for the post.

    This is a cool thread; I like all the lighters. I wish I did not throw all of mine away that were given to me from relatives long ago.....

    Hey there Old Dog,
    My bro collects lighters and would probably love that old table lighter. Do you want to sell it? If so, how much? Thanks,

    Baldingboy,

    Please read my last post

    No offence anyone , I didn't post it with a for sale sign.
    Thanks anyway.

    Now back to the thread ...
    Jeff,
    do you think there is any way you can recover the outside of yours?
    It has sparked my interest , Sure hope we can figure out what it really looked like, when it was new.
