Ronson Crown is the most popular and probably the longest produced Ronson table lighter ever. It was first manufactured in 1936.
This wick lighter is handy and silver plate. The earliest versions of Ronson Crown had a red felt pad around the base rim, the others have a green one. This has a green one.
This lighter was sold in very different configurations after 1949: with cigarette box, urn, tray and even candle holder set. The newer version was also available gold plated and rhodium plated which are rare.
This lighter is decorative only. When you press the top it opens but there is no flint flash. We have not filled it to try it.
