S.T. Dupont Cylinder Table Lighter, 1971

The S.T. Dupont Cylinder Table Lighter model is a modern example of a luxury gas cigarette lighter made in France. It was marketed since 1971 around the world and discontinued probably in 1997. It had a three year guarantee and came in a red giftbox.

I have a mint-excellent silver Dupont cylinder table lighter acquired in 1972. The only use was trying it out a few times. I wish to sell it.
