  • Details
    FOR SALE ☞ German Fabel Warme bakelite plug in lighter with original box and instruction manual.

    DESCRIPTION ☞ This made in Germany, Fabel Warme bakelite plug in lighter with original box and instruction manual is a very rare piece. This unique lighter was made sometime during the war in the early 1940s and was to be used when plugged into a 110 volt outlet. The lighter is of two part construction and pulls apart from its plug in docking base to expose the lighter portion and wick. The rear of the lighter screws off to add lighter fluid. The inside of the lighter has a cotton filling to absorb the lighter fluid. The instruction manual is only in German, but can be easily translated. It provides instruction on use and maintenance of the lighter. Please note that to be used in North America, a European plug in travel converter would be required.

    DIMENSIONS & WEIGHT ☞ Approx: L 4.5 inch

    CONDITION ☞ This lighter is in new to very gently used condition. The instruction manual is also in excellent condition. It shows now signs of fading or heavy use. No rips or tears. The plain, original box (not shown) is in decent condition with only minor signs of wear and use. The insert (seen in photos) is made of recycled cardboard and was once square but one corner has been ripped open. Please see photos. Color may differ slightly in real life from how it appears on your screen due to varying monitor settings. Have a question about this item or want to see more photos?
