Ronson Juno Table Lighter, 1950


The Ronson Juno was first manufactured in 1950. The production went on till 1956 in Newark (USA), Toronto (Canada) and London (England). It is a very slim and tall table lighter (look at dimensions). Juno is heavy silver-plated (partly polished and satin) and uses the same lighter fitment as the Ronson Gloria and Ronson Penciliter. The lighter insert is removable.

The pattern used at the bottom of the base is very similar to that used in the Ronson Newport table lighter.

The base is padded with cork or green thick felt. The silver plate is protected by a transparent lacquer.
