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 and Sara, received my parcel this morning and have just got back from walking the dog - wearing my new gaiters!
Excellent service and a good price too - thanks very much!

The trolley, ordered on Wednesday evening, arrived early this morning. I'm impressed by the speed of delivery, and the trolley, (for carrying my musical equipment on 'gigs') is ideal...It's light, strong, and very small when folded. I think you could approach the Musicians' Union, to place an ad in the Union Magazine. Many thanks for your excellent service. Derek Bellwood (Pro keyboards player since 1958.) P.S. You've saved an old pro from much backache!

Thank you for your e-mail and telephone message. I'm pleased to hear that my order has been despatched. I have rented an allotment which is full of long grass to clear. I'm so pleased to have found the right tool for the job via your website and also to have supported a small family business.
Hi Sara, Should give another 10 years of global travel! Had to drill out 2 rivets put in by Antler- thanks Richard.
Richard E., Cambridgeshire
I received my clincher browbands yesterday, and they are just better than expected! They are absolutely perfect. I have been looking for these for month, because they have to be xfull and with no brand in the side, and then I found yours.
Thank you so much for the good service and for quick delivery.
It is not the last time I will buy something from your shop.
Stine H., Denmark

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
I just want to thank you for your delivery. Your customer service was superb and the wheels fitted perfectly for an Antler case that is nearly 12 years old and has been all over the world with me. Already I'm using them and they have travelled across the UK and Europe.
May I wish you and the business every success.
