I started collecting
vintage cigarette lighters about 7 years ago.
Like most vintage
lighter collectors I've met, I was attracted to the art deco design.
I bought a couple
of reference books, started searching ebay on a regular basis, and
checked other web sites devoted to vintage lighters.
I was surprised
at the variations (both rare and common) of vintage pocket and table
lighters manufactured in the U.S. and Europe in the 1930s and 1940s.
