This fun vintage combination lighter and music box is sure to add a lot of character to your collection.
From the Windmill Lighter Company, this piece is a sweet little novelty that has a lot of fun, kicky features.
As you can see, the piece features a globe on top of a cylindrical base.
When the button on the side is released, the globe revolves and simultaneously rotates around the base while all the while a charming little tune plays.
The top of the base is embellished with a mottled, abstract pattern of brilliant and reflective gold-tone shapes.
The globe's terrestrial features are rendered in a shiny gold color while the rest is characterized by a soft, silver color with a matte-finish.
The arm on the side of the globe (as well as the tiered pedestal) also bear a shimmering gold-color.
Best of all, the globe opens at the center on a hinge to reveal a lighter inside!
The lighter can simply be lifted out and easily refilled. It remains in great, working condition and only requires fluid.
There are marks stamped on each side of the lighter, the first of which reads "Windmill".
The stamp on the opposite side depicts an equilateral four-sided cross.
The final mark can be found on the arm of the globe and reads "Japan".
A piece of sturdy Kelly-green vinyl lines the underside of the piece and prevents any scratching to underlying surfaces.
The piece shows some wear including minor flea-bite scratches and some darkening to the globes two-tiered base.
However, this little beauty remains in good vintage condition overall.
This piece will make a fantastic addition to your collection or a fun, unexpected gift!
