A Dunhill 9K Gold Petrol Lighter by La National Paris

Description

A Dunhill 9K Gold Petrol Lighter by La National Paris

 

This Dunhill case was made in 1925 by La National, Paris, which was a French wholesale jewelry manufacturer

 

The case was sold to Dunhill as a blank and Dunhill used the blank and others like it to produce their very first run of watch lighters

 

It originally had a straight lift arm but this was upgraded during a later visit to Dunhill after 1928

 

The letter “B” stamped on the case is not a Dunhill stamp. It is a La National stock mark and we can not establish what it means as La National no longer exists

 

France, Circa 1925

 

Dimensions: Height: 5″, Width: 4″, Depth: 2.5″ “A” Size

 

Excellent Condition
