Zippo Mood Indigo Cigarette Lighter
Product Code: 20631This Zippo lighter is a must for the silver screen officionado. Somehow Zippo and Hollywood just seem to go together. This mood indigo cigarette lighter is adorned with hollywood images such as stars, projectors and film. A really great gift.
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.

Barry W., Derby
I just wanted to send a big thank you for my order, I had been looking everywhere in the UK for some handle loops to repair a poker case I acquired.
The delivery was a 10/10, receiving my order the very next day. The parts are wonderfully polished and all though were 1mm to long (I thought they might be) but I managed to make them fit, and fit wonderfully.
I will definitely be bringing my business back to your company.
Thank you again and kindest regards
J. Elam, U.K.
