    I don't know much about this item. It was my great grandpas in world war 2. I don't know exactly what it's called and I'm looking for help to figure it out. It looks just like a mini lantern but the wick is gone and no fluid is in it. I was told by my grandpa that it lit his cigarettes while he was in Germany fighting the nazis. Honestly I'm just trying to find out as much info on this thing as possible so if anyone has expert advice on it, let me know.

      A very unique lighter , probably trench art. It looks like an old miners lamp/lantern. Google search miners lamp, images.

      Yes I agree but it's just so small. I was told it clipped to his collar

      Neat item. I'm hoping somebody has an answer, as I've never seen one.
