Ladies Zippo Venetian High Polish Brass Lighter
Product Code: Z1652BFirst released by Zippo in 1974, the Venetian is still on the Zippo's most popuar lighters. For over three decades, the timeless front and reverse floral pattern continues to be the most globally appealing lighter design Zippo has ever released. A really lovely gift for the woman in your life.
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.

Hi Paul, I am writing to congratulate you and your staff on your fast and reliable service. I placed an order for two martingales to be dispatched to my address in Australia on Sunday the 21st of August, and the martingales safely arrived today on the 31st of August, that is less than two weeks which I think is Fantastic service. The martingales are just what I wanted and they look fantastic quality. Thanks again for your speedy service.

Simon M., North Yorkshire
Thank you Paul for excellent customer service. Hat arrived safely on Saturday. It was great to order late Friday lunchtime and receive on Saturday, especially as we are in a fairly remote part of West Cumbria.
Thank you very much for sourcing a handle for my Gino Ferrari briefcase. You obviously went to a lot of trouble to find the correct one. It fits beautifully and has given the case a new lease of life. Great service like this is very hard to find nowadays. Thank you once again.
