Hermès is a French fashion house best known for its silk scarves and Kelly and Birkin bags. Hermès specializes in the design, manufacture and marketing of luxury products. In the making of this lighter, Hermes was inspired by Marlene Dietrich’s lipstick stick, thus being called the ‘lipstick’ lighter.
This Hermes lighter was produced in the 1950s. The lighter has a gold-plated finish which has absolutely no wear. The bottom is engraved with “HERMES PARIS FABRIQUE EN SUISSE BREV. S.G.D.G. DEPOSE”.
