Ronson Art Metal Works Touch Tip Art Deco Black

Lot 0574
Ronson Art Metal Works, Touch Tip Art Deco Black Americana bartender cigarette lighter and holder, Newark, New Jersey, circa 1930, chromed metal, enamel, stamped patent marks, 6"w x 2.75"d x 6.75"h. *Condition report revised Sept 12, 2017.


Original finish throughout. Various small chips and surface scratches throughout. All parts appear to be intact. The flint sparks, but there is no wick. Minor pitting to the chrome, with discoloration or oxidation to the cocktail shaker, bow tie, and bar towel. The right compartment (for cigarettes) is lacking an eyelet that secures the hinge to the metal plate that raises the cigarettes - a small repair is needed. There is a dent to the back left corner of the lid; the round object (can or jar) is pressed in slightly and not level. There is a small repair to the finish of the bar at the top left. The felt on the bottom is deteriorating. Overall, very good original condition. Please contact us for more photos: lisanne@johntoomeygallery.com
