Ronson Gloria Table Lighter, 1952


The Ronson Gloria was first manufactured in 1952. The production went on till 1954 in Newark (USA). It is heavy silver-plated (partly polished and satin) and uses the same lighter fitment as the Ronson Juno 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 Queen Anne which makes the cigarette urn of the Queen Anne also a good match.

The base is padded with cork. The silver plate is protected by a transparent lacquer.

Hi,
I just received a "Gloria" table lighter with the "juno" lighter fitment insert. I see the flint screw and can take out the old one. I do not see another screw for filling with fluid. Do I just fill the bottom of the lighter and lighter fitment with fluid? There is stuffing in both sections of the lighter. Please advise... thanks
