This is a cool M. E. Bernhardt (MEB) Co. Diplomat leather wrapped lift-arm lighter. It was manufactured by Eisenstadt Manufacturing Co. of St. Louis, Missouri for M.E. Bernhardt. This style of lighter is known as a lift arm, and it opens so the flint can be struck and light the wick. The arm itself has a snuffer to put out the flame.
Appr: 2" x 1-1/2" x 1/2
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Leather, Nickel plated brass
"MEB U.S. PAT. 1.022.140. DIPLOMAT"
This is from a Lighter collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VEX17 LFJX8/17 SFJX09/18/20
7+ (Very Fine+): There is some wear and tarnish. The lift arm is very functional and the screw on the bottom are in very fine shape
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
