Used but not abused, shows some light storage markings otherwise brilliantly clean. The lighter will be shipped to you with no fluid as per USPS regulation. Add Ronson or Zippo brand lighter fluid and its ready to put into everyday use.

It is a solid oval-shaped petrol (wick) lighter with an interesting range of motifs covered with a thick transparent plastic. The Ronson Trophy was manufactured probably until the year 1957.
This handsomely designed brass chromium plated desk lighter was based on the Adonis lighter fitment. Known Ronson Trophy motifs:
antique train motif,
carriage scene motif,
multi-color oval motif (see picture),
red roses motif.
This wick lighter was also available as an advertising medium. Known advertisers: Nash Honor Club, '57 Ford Ranchero, Martin Aircraft, Four Rouses Whiskey, Frankfort Distillers Corp, Early Times and Old Forester Whiskey which are rare.
This is a great conversational piece, a lighter that no one will walk off with by mistake like your cheap disposables. Put it on the table for cigar & cigarette smoking, or if you are lucky enough to live in Colorado and Washington a proper 420 session.
