My most recent articles were about some fountain pens that i found had an interesting history. Additions Antiques specializes in a variety of interesting antiques and collectibles. This time I’m going to change things up a bit and go into some vintage cigarette lighter/ tobacciana collectibles.
In In a more elegant time when smoking was considered glamorous. a few companies dedicating their entire output to high quality cigarette lighters and accessories. The first and one of the most interesting companies was Art Metal Works, producing Ronson cigarette lighters cases and accessories in Newark, New Jersey USA. I don’t even smoke but I love these gadgets and their histories. The items I find most interesting are their cigarette lighter case combinations. Ronson was a pioneer in the development of the first practical cigarette lighters and produced one of the first cigarette lighter case combinations, the Ronson Mastercase. The Mastercase was introduced in 1933 and was produced for over 20 years in more then 100 different designs. A few examples are shown at RONSON MASTERCASE For a brief history RONSON.
