I’ve been holding onto this retro Japanese table lighter for years now (some things are just harder to let go of than others!). I love the simplicity of the design, how well made it is, and the fact that nearly fifty years after it was first made it’s still working! The flame is quite small, and it can be quite temperamental, but for the time being at least it still lights up! This butane electric table lighter was produced in 1969 by Toko based company, Sarome, who first opened their doors in 1940, and are still going strong today!
Dimensions: 14cm tall x 7cm in diameter
