This lighter is 5.5 inches tall. The lighter part works smoothly but does not spark. Not sure it was ever used. Probably needs a flint. Age is unknown. I am going to say at least 50's may go back to the Deco era. No manufacturer mark on the pedestal. The lighter part is an evens. The design is gold leaf stars on glass. there is some wear to the gold leaf. I have not cleaned this, looks like that might be warranted but I am always reluctant to cause any wear. Overall an interesting piece I have had in my collection over 10 years.
