Lighter, Barbini?
« on: July 22, 2006, 09:53:37 AM »
I have seen several of these recently with bullicante or adventurine. I believe they were done by Barbini mainly and was wondering if this one could be Barbini as well. Thanks in advance for any info. Terry

Thanks so much for the info. I have another piece and if I can find it and photo it, I suspect it also started out as a table lighter, but when I bought it the insert was gone.  Thanks again, Terry

A complete smoking set by Barbini, who would of thought that that bowl shape is an ashtray!

Hi Terry,
Here's a photo of the matching bowl that goes with the lighter.
It is pictured as a set on the Barbini catalogue.
