A rare Dunhill lighter is to be sold by Lawrences Auctioneers of Crewkerne.

This table lighter is known as an Aquarium Lighter and they were made by Dunhill from the 1950’s onwards. They have lucite panels on both sides with the interiors hand painted showing fish and underwater foliage. It measures 8cms high and 9.5cms across, and comes in very good condition.

These were expensive items to purchase at the time and continue to be highly sought after.

Lawrences’ Auctioneer Simon Jones said, ‘We have sold a couple of these lighters in the last couple of years, and they are always very popular with collectors, so we are expecting a great deal of interest’

This lighter will be sold in Lawrences’ Winter Fine Art Sale on Thursday 18th January. It is expected to make £1000-1500 at auction.
