Gebrüder Köllisch, Consul Arlac, 1963

This Consul Arlac table lighter was made in 1963 by Gebrüder Köllisch A.G. The company was situated in Nürnberg, West Germany. The first Consul table lighter was introduced in 1952 and the company prospered well till 1971/1972 when it was acquired by the giant Braun.  

The Arlac model is a butane gas and flint lighter. It has its flame control switch on the top. The cover is made of black plastic and the rest is made of brass with gold plating. A nice decorative table lighter. Please notice that in the picture above the lighter lies on its beg. 

Marked on the face: Arlac Consul.

What is interesting almost the same design was applied for a Brown and Bigelow Lighter which was marked Remembrance. The size was exactly the same as in Consul Arlac.

I have a Consul Table lighter, but I cannot find a picture of it online. It has a blue box with a gold line on the lower top.The lighter itself is about 3" tall, and 4.5" wide, gold with black leather on both sides.

Do you have any information about this lighter?
