Description
WIFEU - Pocket lighter - Collection of 1
Austria - 1920-1939 - As new - unused

A marvellous ‘WIFEU’ lighter made in Austria in 1930 (Charles Bernhardt).
In perfect condition.
The sheath, hand-sewn in genuine leather, was made in Italy by a craftsman, on the model of the original (the old sheath is also visible in the photos).
Semi-automatic ignition mechanism, pressing upwards, the flame guard rises and generates the spark by means of a friction wheel; to close it, just lower the flame guard.
It features 2 separate tanks with relative wicks on the left and right, they can be refilled by removing the leather case.
The lighter head, as well as the ignition mechanism, can be removed and reassembled in the reverse direction when the first tank runs out.
Shipping via courier to Italy and some European countries. International registered mail for shipments to other countries. For further information or to change shipping method, contact me.
Thank you and happy bidding!
