    I found this among my father's things after he died. I have searched high and low and can't find any info on this Ronson model. I found many Wedgwood Ronson TABLE lighters, but none like this one. Can anyone help identify the correct name, year, etc. ? Thanks in advance!

      Ronson offered a variety of Wedgewood based lighters beginning as early as 1958 with the Rosette then 1962 the Royalty, Ulysses, Imperial, and Four Seasons. Later Wedgewood versions were also made using Varaflame butane lighters. Some of these were sets which included matching ashtrays and matchholder cups. I believe your design is called "Cherubs" - try searching Ronson Jasperware too as not everyone lists them as Wedgwood.

      Thank you, that's more info than I had before! I still have only found 1 other one on the internet, so I'm wondering if this is particularly rare?

      Here is one in a 1956 ad I found on ebay - it is a different shape, but it has your 'cherubs' emblem (at the bottom of the page - Capri model)

      It looks like they were available in green, black, and also lilac jasperware. I used to have a site where I could flip thru their catalogs by year but like an idiot I didn't 'pin' it and now I can't find it again.

      I looked online for catalogs too and didn't find anything useful. Thanks for everyone's help. If anyone has anything else that would help me in my search I would appreciate it!
