Rare1932 Ronson Rondelight, Baby.

Good Condition.

 

Description

The "Baby" Ronson Ball Lighter is both rare and desireable.

Because it was primarily sold as part of one of the combination sets, and not often on it's own.

Further, though initially surprising, is the fact that all ball lghters, from Dunhill, Ronson, Kaschie or any other manufacturer suffer from regularly being dropped!

There must be something about the shape that makes it easy to mis-handle.

Consequently these lighters seem to be either damaged or missing. And this lighter becomes the missing part of many a Ronson set.

Below are pictures of both sides, please note the single screw for the fulcrum, making this an "Old Standard" fitment.

 

Returning to the damage that regularly occurs, as I said Ball Lighters tend to get dropped, therfore they tend to have large, significant dents, often many dents. And whilst this Lighter is not in perfect cosmetic condition, it does not have any significant dents, just 1 very small dint.
