Ronson Baseball Trophy

This trophy is one of several athletic trophies that Ronson made in the late 1930s..

This trophy is about 9" tall.

The plaque is engrave "ABA, Army v Ireland, Newry, 1941."

Ronson Victory Trophy

This trophy is one of several styles that Ronson made in the late 1930s. According to old Ronson advertisements, these trophies were offered with a variety of figures (mostly athletic figures, such as a baseball player, a golfer, a bowler) and in a couple of different finishes.

Some were mounted on bases with an ashtray, cigarette box, or rondelight lighter. Others were mounted on bases with bookends, a lamp, or on a stand-alone base (as shown here).

This trophy is about 12" tall.

This trophy is about 9-1/2" tall.

Rondelight Solid Ball Table Lighter

This ball-shaped lighter is solid, unlike the other Rondelight models. The flint and fuel screws are in the bottom of the lighter.

The lighter is the size of a baby Rondelight: about 2-1/8" tall and about 1-3/4" in diameter.

It is one of only a handful known to exist among collectors.

 

Rondelight Golf Ball (Bogey) Table Lighter

This ball-shaped lighter is nickel plated. It is about the size of the Rondelight baby table lighter (about 1-5/8" in diameter).

I believe it dates to the 1940s.

 

 

Ronson Female Golfer and Touch-Tip Lighter

This is a combination female golfer figure and a touch-tip lighter from about 1940.

Ronson made these combination touch-tip models with a variety of athletic figures, but the only two versions I have seen are the male golfer and female golfer.

 

Ronson Perisphere Table Lighter

This Ronson table lighter was made around 1936. The ball-shaped base is ribbed glass.

The lighter is about 3-1/2" tall and about 3" in diameter.
