Duchin Creations, Sterling, 1944

The lighter name is unknown though it was manufactured in relatively small amount in the 1940's by Duchin Creations starting from 1944. Duchin Creations had its headquarters in New York (NY, U.S.A.) and was a popular maker of a large line of sterling hollowware in the 1940's.

There are at least two different types of sterling lighters marketed by Duchin Creations. This one has a swirl-rimmed pattern and was matching many other hollowware items made by Duchin Creations like: candlesticks, pepper and salt shakers, candelabras etc. The base of the lighter is weighted.

The lighter insert is a typical chrome plate insert made in Japan.
