This is an elegant and distinguished vintage Cartier lighter, made of 18 carat solid gold casing and set with 29 small diamonds totaling about half a carat of diamonds. An exquisite example of fine Cartier craftsmanship, it has a wonderfully simple, retro design. Diagonal bands of silver and gold stretch around the outside of the lighter and the diamonds are set in a straight line on one side. A great piece for one who appreciates a great vintage aesthetic!
This lighter measures 2 3/4" x 1" x 1/2". It is in very good vintage condition, but it does have some minor dents and scratches. It is marked "Cartier," "PARIS," "750", and "41557C." It is in perfect working order, it just needs a butane refill. The diamond color is G/H Sl1 clarity. This lighter comes in its Cartier original box.
