Lancel Lighters - France

Lancel was founded in Paris by the Lancel family in 1876. They opened a shop selling pipes and other tobacco related articles and later expanded into leather goods. In 1928 lancel began manufacturing lighters in their own factory. Models were made in silver of Chinese lacquer and some included a watch. In the early 1950s Lancel introduced a butane lighter of the same design as their then current petrol model. Production ended in 1965.
