Advert: Gillette Wild Cricket Table Lighters, 1973

The 1970s were years when table lighters were disappearing from the markets all over the world. The demand for them fall significantly because of cheap and easy to get disposable butane lighters. Some trials to keep this segment alive eventually failed. 

Below one of the attempts made by Gillette - the Cricket "Accent table lighter" was a combination of various bases in which disposable lighters could be easily fitted. Not a bad idea but very kitschy workmanship.
