Ladies High Polish Chrome Zippo Lighter
Product Code: Z1610This Zippo lighter is a classic for any lady. Zippo have a way of developing a lighter to suit everyone. This time they have simply polished one of their slim ladies lighters to give it a wonderfully lustrous finish.
Read on to find out more about Zippo lighters and why we like them.
Zippo was created in 1932 by George Blaisdell, an oilman who watched a friend struggling to light a woman’s cigarette on a breezy day. In the small town of Bradford, Philadelphia, Blaisdell tinkered away, and built a small chimney around a wick to produce a windproof lighter. He gave it the famous lifetime guarantee and called the company Zippo.
Zippo's first location was a small machine shop on the second floor of the Richerson & Pryde garage on Bolyston Street in downtown Bradford, Philadelphia. The Zippo Windproof Lighter sign originally painted on the multi-paned window of the shop has become a symbol of Zippo's early days.
During World War II Blaisdell, a very smart promoter, shipped hundreds of Zippos to generals and war correspondents. Word of the lighter's durability and dependability spread, and the U.S. government ordered every lighter the Zippo Manufacturing Company could produce between 1943 and 1945.
When Blaisdell died in 1978 Zippo went to his two daughters, Harriett Wick and Sarah Dorn. They knew the business quite well having grown up stuffing cotton wicks into Zippos. Today their children work for the company too.
Save a few minor changes in the flint wheel and case finishes, the Zippo remains nearly exactly as George Blaisdell created it over 70 years ago. Today, the Zippo brand makes tape measures, knives, money clips, writing instruments and key holders, all engravable and personalizable to the owner. The American-made quality and Lifetime Guarantee makes the Zippo lighter a valuable collector's item around the world, with collectors' clubs in England, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Japan, and of course, the United States.

Just a note to say thank you, I have received the trinket box. I was very pleased with the quality of the product (you are not always too sure from the photograph what you will end up with).
Karl H., Leeds
Very many thanks for fulfilling my order and for your kindness in not charging for the strapping as it was shorter than requested.
Thank you also for your prompt service.

Hi Paul, Wow! This is SERVICE!!
Wheels ordered yesterday, received this morning and I fitted them this evening. If I hadn't had to go out today, the job would have been done by noon.
Thank you so much. I am passing your company's details to the local luggage supplier who could not help with the repair of my out of guarantee Antler case. It's now as good as new.
Many many thanks.
Chris M., Somerset
Thanks very much for the case wheels (and sent so quickly). The axles are a bit long, but I've managed to squeeze them in. You've saved me the cost of a new case, which is great! Best wishes.
