Silver cigar lighters. I quit smoking 20 years ago but by then they were all plastic, anyway.

Solid silver ball shaped table lighter that is supported on three double scroll feet and sits on a black stone plinth. The lighter has a central burner and three individual removable wands as lighters that can be drawn up to the cigar. In plain polished silver embellished only with a very subtle bead border around the rim of each lighter. Edwardian, 1901. Made in London, England by Goldsmiths and Silversmiths Company Ltd.
