We have recently acquired an exciting large collection of fine vintage lighters which we will be listing over the next few weeks. Please be sure to check back often and have a look at our other lighter listings! This auction is offering a unique vintage Apollo Lighter featuring advertising for a Providence, RI Auto repair service which is still in business. Chrome arm lift top and matte silver body with enameled advertising on both sides. Front has Atlantic Imperial Logo in a shield. Back sides reads “Pate’s Atlantic Service, 700 Douglas Avenue Providence Rhode Island Phone MA. 1-0921”. Dates to the 1950s. Marked on base, “Apollo Automatic Superlighter Japan.” Also marked “Apollo on lift arm mechanism on front side of lighter. Measures 2 1/8″ x 1 5/8”. Comes with original cardboard box marked “Japan” and tissue lining. See condition details, above. A nice and unusual addition to your Tobacciana, Automobilia or lighter collection and a must have for local Providence, RI collectors. All our lighters are working unless otherwise noted however they will be shipped dry and may require new flints or possibly wicks in some cases.
