Thai Silver Zippo Lighter
Exceptionally fine old Thai “Siam Silver” repousse Zippo lighter case with Apsaras, Erawan and Garuda depicted. I have collected about 7 of these since 1974 and this is the finest one I have ever seen. This one has workmanship on all sides except the bottom where it has a Siam Sterling hallmark and the initials D J M etched; normally these are only worked on the front and back. These are occasionally offered on Ebay but you will never see one with such a high standard of craftsmanship that can no longer be done these days. This one is pre 1950 in good working order; there is one minor “knock” on the lid easily seen in enlargements.
