A novelty chrome and Bakelite table lighter in the form of a missile or rocket, comprising the main rocket body with shaped tail fins and upper lighting mechanism supported by a chrome arm attached to a sloping black Bakelite base with ball feet. The lighter fluid is added through the rear of the rocket body through a threaded screw-in stopcock. Dating from the late 1950’s to early 1960’s this classic retro piece would look great as a decorative or functional object and make a great conversation piece. It is a rare example of its kind and I cannot find an identical example on the web, the majority of similar examples being in the form of a jet fighter or vertically orientated rocket.
