RONSON TOUCH TIP AND PIPE REST COMBO

This is a very nice example of a circa 1940’s Ronson Touch Tip and Pipe Rest Combo – finished in Georgian Bronze. It has been cleaned and tuned to insure it works as it did when it was made-70 or so years ago. It is a fairly heavy piece with the finish on the top plate has less than usual scratching- the remainder of the finish is in good shape with minor aging. It appears to have sat unused through the majority of its life. Importantly, it appears it has never been dropped and all the pipe rests are intact, unbent or broken, a rarity for this model. The piece is all original including the wand and wick holder. I can add new wick material which lasts many times longer than the original Ronson material, or you can keep it original, whichever you choose! Of course, it lights first time every time like it should! ! If you are looking for a really nice pipe rest combo- this is it! Or an extra special gift for that certain someone- even if it’s YOU!

The piece is all original including the first design wand that has an internal wick that can be fed out as needed as it wears. It has a new felt pad on the bottom and of course it lights first time every time like it should!

 RONSON TOUCH TIP WITH CIGARETTE BOX TABLE LIGHTER

It has been cleaned and tuned to insure it works as it did when it was made-70 or so years ago. It is a fairly heavy piece and the chrome on the top plate has the usual scratching- the two side panels are chrome that shows their age- but still very presentable.  The tortoise enamel is intact and shiny but there are two small dents where body curves around to the bottom- in the back- would only look worse had I tried to straighten them. The piece is all original except it has the correct design replacement wand and new wick material as the material I use lasts many times longer than the original Ronson material- has 4 new cork pads on the bottom and of course it lights first time every time like it should! !

RONSON TOUCH TIP WITH CIGARETTE BOX AVON MODEL

This is a really nice example of a circa 1930S Ronson Touch Tip with cigarette box– it is finished in Dureum which is in much nicer shape than a lot of the Dureum pieces I see– with a tortoise enamel body and a hinged clear plastic lid- a relatively rare piece compared to the more common models. It has a different touch tip mechanism than most- only seen on a couple of models– It has been cleaned and tuned to insure it works as it did when it was made-70 or so years ago. It is a fairly heavy piece and shows almost none of the usual dings or scratches usually seen on these types of mechanisms- probably because it has a much larger actuator button than the other designs. The tortoise enamel is intact and shiny but there is one small spot of loss- on the bottom so unseen unless you pick it up and turn it over. It also holds both non-filter and regular filter tip sized smokes! The piece is all original including the cylinder shaped wand which is smaller in size than other designs–and new wick material as the material I use lasts many times longer than the original Ronson material- has 4 new cork pads on the bottom and of course it lights first time every time like it should! ! If you are looking for a nice cigarette box combo- this is a nice one! Or an extra special gift for that certain someone- even if it’s YOU!

RONSON TOUCH TIP LIGHTER WITH SMALL FACE WATCH
MALTESE FALCON MODEL!

This is a really really nice example of a circa 1936 Ronson touch tip table lighter with small face watch- made famous by being featured sitting on Sam Spade’s desk in the Maltese Falcon-and so one of the most sought after touch tips ever made. And after close examination- the piece was never used- the felt sleeve in the reservoir is white- never had a burned wick in it! It is finished in tortoise enamel with an ivory enamel ring around the face of the watch. As is the norm with all the lighters I sell- I went through the mechanics to be sure it was in excellent working order- lights first time every time and is perfect for everyday use. The watch is also brand new- not a mark on it- so I’ve run it for about a week now and it gains about 7-8 minutes every day- which is as good as these New Haven “dollar” watches ever were. The piece is all original including an inverted cone wand with new wick material as the material I use lasts many times longer than the original Ronson material- and a new felt pad on the bottom. The enamel on the ring is intact in great shape! It has been mishandled at some time in its life as there is one bald spot on the upper left of the front of the body- and a small ding on the spark wheel cover- but with the rest of the piece being as nice as it is I felt it best to leave it rather than try to do a touch up and end up making it worse. Overall- a great piece- rarely if ever in this “as new” condition.

It is figure 182 in the 2000 Ronson book and rated rare — price for this piece is $850 including Priority Mail postage anywhere in the US. Comes with a copy of an original Touch Tip instruction sheet and a nine pack of new production Ronson  Firebronze flints- best for these older pieces.
