Zippo Beatles Spectrum Cigarette Lighter 20591
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, Sara and Paul, Thank you very much for your message and for shipping so fast!
I'm so happy, that I could find this hat, I ordered my last one, which I have lost :( in Germany, but you can't find this item anymore here!
So I googled.....and found you! I'm sure, this will not be my last order with you! Thank you so much and have a nice day!
Karin W., Germany
Thank you Paul, small but very useful business!
Without you my favourite bag would have been destined for retirement. These goods are so hard to find in these modern times :)
Dear Paul that is excellent service. Thank you. I was about to throw away my briefcase which I dreaded doing as it has been a faithful pal for 30 years. Now I don't have to and it was just a thought that I wondered if anyone provided spares. So I'm really pleased. I will now register Best regards

Hello to you, I have received my Betty liner today and am very pleased too, I do so like the black one in lieu of the olive.
Your service is excellent and the delivery was so speedy.
I will be visiting your site on other occasions and will definitely recommend you to my friends. Thank you again ,
Maureen C., Dorset
Thanks for selling such a quality product. I looked high and low for this kind of leather wallet with an elastic strap to keep it closed, but it seems might be the only company to manufacture such a product. My father has a wallet just like it, but his is old and nearly destroyed, so I'm happy to be able to replace it for him.Best wishes.
Adam M., New York
