With a subtle guilloched zig-zag pattern and crisply snapping cap, this lighter has the appropriate timeless design and vintage appeal. Dunhill, which still exists today, is a well-known purveyor of gentleman's accessories. The design of concentric circles on the fuel cap at the bottom of the lighter, as well as the presence of the U.S. patent code, indicates production of this piece from the early 1970s.
