Town and country - Pheasant 1949

 

Town and country - Pheasant.

This example is missing all of it's enamel unfortunately, it is a good insight however into how these T&C lighters are produced.

I purchased this from Ebay quite cheaply as it was being sold as a "Pheasant silhouette lighter". There was no mention of Town and country so I can only assume the previous owner knew not what it was. This was my first T&C.

I have dated it specifically to 1949 from the bottom stamp, partly from information here and "The passionate wick" has one of the same. It has a five barrel hinge making it late 1949.
