H030689 CIGARETTE LIGHTER. (Feuerzeug)

BACKGROUND: Although Hitler himself despised smoking the use of tobacco products was firmly entrenched in Germany, as elsewhere, when he came into power. As with most other nations the German government levied a tax on all tobacco and tobacco accessory products sold as a source of revenue. Although "tailor-made" cigarettes were readily available, hand rolled cigarettes were still the most common form of cigarettes. Along with the tobacco products other smoking accessories were also widely produced and included an assortment of lighters. The lighters were an indispensable personal item carried by almost everyone, besides just tobacco smokers, to ignite fires, light candles, etc., etc.,

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Roughly, 6cm tall, 2cm diameter, multi-piece, tooled, polished natural aluminum construction cigarette lighter.
