The Lighter Library website is a work in progress. It is free, growing knowledge-base of researched information collected from original documents, published reference materials, individual collectors' websites and forums, and independent research by Library contributors. Our goal is to provide factual info about all types of lighters to help fellow enthusiasts accurately identify, date and learn more about the provenance of their collections.

This project is in its infancy. For this free resource to evolve into a true encyclopedia of knowledge about vintage lighters, contributions from other knowledgeable collectors with specialized expertise is essential.

Not For Sale
Please do not ask to buy lighters shown here, nothing is for sale. Libraries are places learn, not to buy. The same is true on this website. The lighters shown in the Lighter Library are from private collections and are shown/shared only for educational purposes only.
