Zippo Ace High Polish Chrome Cigarette Lighter
Product Code: Z24196Zippo Ace Cigarette Lighter with High Polish Chrome finish. The engraved ace playing card design cleverly incorporates the Zippo flame.
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.

Customers SayThe part arrived today 24 March first class service thank you
Barry W., Derby
Thank you for your prompt response for my order - I am thrilled as I bought this belt at Christmas in Selfridges and paid 41 pounds for it - I know my husband liked it so am buying it again for him (at a saving despite the 4+ pounds postage cost) - actually this order is for my dad who has lost weight and I will give the one I'd bought him to my husband.
You seem to have a nice range of products so I am copying this to my brother and sister and father so that they also have your details to hand should they require anything of a similar nature.
Thanks again, and I will loook forward to your emails, and to receiving the belt tomorrow.
