Extremely rare working antique semi-automatic table lighter and ashtray set from the Thorens Company out of Switzerland. Made in the 1920s, the lighter features a semi-automatic mechanism that is activated by pressing the button on the front. Lid flips open and the wick is simultaneously ignited. Strong action. Great condition and patina. This was followed by the double-claw design in the 1930s. The lighter is set in an amazing green marble base, and it comes with a matching ashtray. Both the base and ashtray were made in Germany, with the lighter insert originating from Switzerland. Absolutely amazing set. Some small chips in the ashtray (please refer to pictures for overall condition). If you have any questions, just ask! This vintage lighter was disassembled, cleaned, and rebuilt with a new flint/packing, and any needed replacement parts. Perfect working order. Wonderful vintage condition. Lighter measures approximately 3 1/4" tall and 2 1/8" in diameter. All work performed by The Northern Electric Lighting Company, NC.
