Circa 1950s, this cigarette lighter inspired by a castle tower (battlements included) was designed by Fred Zimbalist, a cousin of Ephrem Zimbalist, Sr. (the famed concert violinist).
Silver pieces such as this one were all hand tooled in India and no two were exactly the same.
Produced by Thorens and made in India, this working brass cigarette lighter with silver nickel plating, features ornate tooling and graceful lines. It measures approximately 7 3/4" high and 3" in diameter. It plays "Lara's Theme" from Dr. Zhivago. Another unusual piece that will make an interesting addition to your smoker's collection.
