Negbaur Golf Bag Table Lighter, 1940

This figural wick lighter was manufactured by Negbaur between 1940 and 1949 in Allbright, New York in the United States. It is made of die cast metal in a dark cooper antique (uncommon) or chrome plate finish (rare). It presents a set of golf clubs in a golf bag. When the putter is pushed the top section flips open and the lighter lights.

The Golf Bag lighter was advertised as a "practical and novelty lighter for the desk or table". It was a bestseller on the Negbaur's list.

Negbaur was well known for their other solid built figural lighters, like planes, knights, canons, chess figures or planes made in the earlier years (1930s and 1940s). The Negbaur Golf Bag is very collectible as it is well build and designed. As many of them were manufactured it is not a problem to find one in excellent shape.
