    quite similar to Thorens although there are some differences, so for example there nafig everything is closed and the distance to the wick less spring together and not separate from the loop though it all so clear without my snot =)
    but more interesting is something else: someone with whom the system has copied, or with whom they stripped together, they are too similar

    Well, Thorens in my 20-year produced ...

    Thorens began to produce in 1920 in Switzerland, Nassau in 1911 in the United States. And the mechanism invented in Austria in 1909. It was a few different models of lighters with a similar mechanism. So here ends not find someone who has :)

  5. termit - 21.08.2010

    and if it is not a secret any more lighters have such a mechanism?

    Several of these were: Thorens, Nassau, PM, Nuton, even some names forgotten. Take another look here for example:

    Do not tell me how often you can see this model at auction ( Or maybe tell me where else you can buy a similar model?
    Very much I liked it)))

    And where in addition to EBay you can buy lighters?
    I understand that stupid question, but maybe there are some no-whether auctions which is a fairly large selection? (I know about the hammer;) but something I do not really like it))))

  11. kypexin - 30.09.2011

    No, there are no other options. In the West, it is ebay (unless you take into account the "garage sales" and flea market), we have a hammer or That's all.

    Hello All. I am new to lighter collecting, and I have questions about this table lighter. Where it was made? About how old is it? Where can I find more about this company.

    It is made of 80 or 90% silver, and has Original AN patent made in CSR. I have great pictures to share, and would love to learn more.

    Best wishes,
