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.

Sara & Paul,
This is just to confirm safe delivery of the handbag strap which will enable me to use a nice bag which I've neglected for ages as its own strap is far too long, not ajustable, too narrow and therefore uncomfortable. I Googled 'brown leather handbag strap' and was delighted to find I could buy exactly what I wanted - colour, width, length, adjustable, clip-on - from yourselves. Many thanks for the very prompt and efficient service too.
Marion H., Edinburgh
Thanks so much for such a great service. Have received the bag and it's absolutely gorgeous. thank you!

Sorry for leaving it so long to just say I was so impressed by your speedy and efficient delivery of my new suitcase wheels and axles which came literally a day and a half only from when I ordered. Excellent service
Thanks again,'n' keep up the good work Cheers,
Brian G., Lancashire
I recently received a replacement lock from you. It didn't take too long to
install it, and now I no longer have to go everywhere with a belt fastened
around my briefcase. The briefcase was a gift from my father-in-law, so
it's especially important to me to have been able to replace it.
Thanks so much for the prompt service--and for selling replacement locks in
the first place!

Thank you for my three Masta quilted dog rugs. They're just what I expected from Masta, perfection! I was delighted to get them so fast. My golden retrievers looked at me thrilled to bits. I will definitely use your firm again, someone once said 'never make a promise to a customer you can't keep' you certainly lived up to your promise, perfect price, perfect product, perfect service, perfect punctuality. The four p's : all add up to perfection. So many thanks, from Kathryn, Laurel, Hardy and Bradly

Thank you. You have "cool" stuff. I am being consecrated a bishop next month, and the crook is perfect in simplicity and its real life use for shepherds. I look forward to receiving it.

Paul and Sara, Thank you very much for the prompt delivery of the item. I didn't expect it to turn up this morning. Great service. Kind regards,

I was snowed in last winter for 24 days and have spent the last 12 months searching in mobility shops for this item without any success.
Having now been snowed in since Nov 27 here on the Pennine hills (Lancs/Yorkshire border) I was spending my hours on the internet researching hiking sticks for a friend when I stumbled across your website.
