Ladies Zippo Venetian High Polish Chrome Lighter
Product Code: Z1652First 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.

I received the walking stick this morning and do appreciate the speed that you got it to me. It is for a Birthday present for my husband later this month. He loves walking and I thought this might be a present he would enjoy and a little different.
Hello Sara, Thanks for your help.. I received the sweater today and the color is exactly what I wanted...simply perfect. Thanks
I will order again from you in the future when I need shoes or clothes.

I used the handles on some old Marshall pa speaker cabinets. I'll be ordering 8 large leather strap handles (brown) real soon, for some early 60's Marshall 4x12 cabinets. I will like you on Facebook too !

Thanks a lot. I'm really impressed. I was shopping christmas presents the other day and ordered both from Danish web shops and your shop in UK. I was surprised that I received the package from you earlier than the Danish shops. And the boots for my daughter are just perfect. Thanks again :) Regards Anette

Hello there, I have now received the walking stick, and it is beautiful! Very happy with the product and the communication. Thank you very much.
Gary S., Fife
I would just like to say thank you for my order it is perfect. I have a Radley grap bag in dark brown with shades of pinks which at times I just wished I could put over my shoulder. With your help I am now able. Matching the brown was harder, but a few shades of pink on the bag and the design of the bag I am able to fix your shoulder strap, it is now going to be great. Thank you once again.
