Offered is a very nice art deco late 1920's dunhill. Single wheel liftarm petrol pocket sport lighter in original box.
The swiss made windproof dunhill features wise and greenwoods built up "smokestack shaped" windscreen. The windscreen was first invented in 1927 as an improvement to their 1919 liftarm.
The lighter mechanism is serviced and should work with proper service of fresh fuel. The silver plating has a rich age patina mixed with blotchy tarnish that will clean with silver polish if desired. There is a scratch on the fuel screw and the edges are slightly blunt but easy to unscrew. Dunhill sport lighters are extremely popular with collectors and examples in original boxes are extremely rare. Overall - an important windproof 1920's dunhill liftarm sport model lighter. For the best of collections.
