Do you know the history of this. Very often items like this were made by soldiers or pow in the war.

@barrowlane I guess it's from around WW2 and hand made but I don't Know?

What an amazing lighter......I may be tempted to try and make something similar to this in the future using my trusty blowtorch. So creative, and beautifully shot!
