This sleek mid-century ebony black Ronson table lighter is called the PIONEER. It comes in its original box and appears to be unused. Pull out the lighter mechanism from the base and you can see it's all clean with white wick.
The lighter measures 2 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches across the base. It's 3 1/2 inches high. The bottom is marked...RONSON PIONEER - LIGHTER FITMENT BRITISH EMPIRE MADE - HONG KONG - U.S. PAT. 2,481,195 - LIGHTER BASE MADE IN U.S.A. Made circa 1960.
The matte black Lucite (?) being what it is...matte black...shows minimal surface scuffs you only see when it's turned toward the light. A tiny fleabite at bottom edge...storage related/handled wear. The box surface shows slight storage wear. Overall, this will work with a flint and some fluid. Excellent vintage condition. (This seems to be a rare version as most were made with an aluminum base.)
