    Description

    Theodore Roosevelt: Counter-top Electric Cigar Lighter. 7" x 7" x 8.5" (base only, not counting lighting mechanism) counter-top cigar lighter advertising "TR The Real American" cigar. A metal plaque attached to the back side indicates it was manufactured by the Davenport Manufacturing Company and was known as the "Midland Jump Start Cigar Lighter." The last patent date is January 20, 1920. Three of the side glass panels hold inner labels for the "TR Real American" cigar (two of these are original and one a color photocopy replacement). The cord is frayed, so we don't advise using it. Some minor damp stains to labels and wear to wood finish.
