Trench Art lighters


World War I (1914-1918)



WW1 Trench Art - a fine, smaller, "BIBLE", Book Lighter,

with two Holy Crosses !

Opportunity to own a Great War era book-style brass crafted soldier's pocket lighter, in the shape of a small Holy Bible. This displays two Holy Crosses, one on the front and one on the back.

The screw wheel etc. has survived 95 years and still sparks !

 Great little addition for any militaria or tobacciana collection.

Measures appx. 4.5cm x 2.5cm.

Questions and answers about this item

Q: How do you know how old this lighter is? Is it in working condition? Any more info?
A: It was sold to me 30 years ago as WW1 era, and is typical of book lighters crafted then. The wheel rotates, and the flint sparks - fuel might make it work, but unsure. Thanks.
