Art Deco Ronson Clock (Large Face) Touch Tip Lighter – Figure 190 – Very Rare. Figure 190 in the Ronson book by Urban Cummings. This version is much rarer than figure 182 (TT and Watch Combination). Please review the pics closely, as they show the condition. Overall a very nice example of this rare and desirable Ronson Touch Tip lighter. The clock had worked for years of me owning it, but now has stopped. I’m sure it’s just a matter of lubricating it. It just sat on my shelf for years. The “lighter” mechanism also could use a cleaning/lubrication job. It’s mechanically perfect but it could use a replacement flint. It sparked properly for years but now doesn’t. I probably just wore the flint out playing with it. The automatic match mechanism still works properly. The original match stick is nice, straight and in good overall condition, though it needs a proper replacement w. I always intended to go over this myself, as I collected lighters for decades and LOVE Art Deco. I consider this one as perhaps the best out of my collection. Now, my life situation has changed, so I’ll pass it onto another collector. An awesome “lighter, ” seen in the movie “The Maltese Falcon, ” back when it was still being offered by Ronson.
