This old plastic lighter is called a Match Lite and it was made in Hong Kong. The pale, mint green plastic that I believe is Bakelite, has a strip of flint composition down the edge. You unscrew the brass knob to extract the metal rod which acts as the “match”. It uses a small amount of lighter fluid which will supposedly last about a month under normal usage and it can be used for cigarettes, pipes, cigars and other instances like camping or outdoor cooking. It has a handy brass ring on the top. It comes in its original cardboard box with enclosed instructions. There is a “punch out” hole so the color of the lighter can be seen without opening the box. I believe this is from the 1930’s into the 1950’s.

The lighter measures about 1 1/8” by about 1 ½” with the brass knob extending to an overall length of 1 ¾” and it’s about 3/8” thick. The box measures about 1 ¼” by 2” by ½”. It is all in very good unused condition. The plastic on the bottom edge has a little roughness with small chips but since I believe this had never been used or even taken out of the box previous to my removal of it I think these were just in the manufacturing and lack of quality control. The paper instruction sheet is in very good, originally folded condition.
