Art Deco Ronson Mastercase Cigarette Case and Lighter - image 1 of 13

Steve must have been a pretty suave guy back on October 22, 1939, when Fran presented him with this cool combination cigarette case and lighter. The date is inscribed on the bottom of the case, and the initials S and V are emblazoned on the silver plate on the front of the lighter. Ronson, a part of Art Metal Works of Newark, New Jersey, began the manufacture of the Mastercase line of lighters in 1933. This became one of the most popular of the Ronson lighters, and its sleek appearance and reliability were two reasons why.

This case/lighter comes with a felt pouch and cardboard case. The case shows some wear and one corner has been taped--see photos. There are a few somewhat minor scratches on the faux tortoise shell portions of the case and perhaps a small indentation on the faux shell, although this may have been original. It has a wick and a workable wheel; it contains no flint or fluid. The lighter measures 4 1/4" by 2 3/8" with a depth of 7/16" The case is 5 1/4" by 3 5/8".
