Original Description:
An ‘Aquarium’ table lighter in the rare small ‘Service’ size, with plated metal hardware and Lucite panels decorated with fish, cast retailer's mark and engraved with patent number '145752'.This stunning mid-century lighter features a striking aqua and green background, with three red and silver fish on one side and one large ‘Angel’ fish on the other, with turquoise highlights. A lovely example with clear panels in gorgeous colours. English, circa 1950. This ligh...ter is fully operational with cotton wick, wadding and flint fitted. It just needs fuel. Ben Shillingford (1904-2000) worked for Dunhill in the 1950’s and perfected the art of carving and painting lucite panels to resemble miniature aquariums, these panels were then applied to the lighter bodies in four sections. Upon his retirement, his workmanship could not be equaled, and the skills necessary to continue to manufacture the aquarium lighter couldn't be found, hence production ceased. Today these exquisite aquarium lighters have become highly prized, collected and revered throughout the world.
