    Old Joe Lighter

    This is a picture someone shared with me. It's a cigarette lighter in the form of a miniature whiskey bottle. Seems like a natural premium idea for back in the day, but this is the first one I've ever seen. Anybody else ever seen one of these?

    In my correspondence with the owner, he tells me he thinks it was a hand-made one-off, perhaps a prototype for something that was never mass-produced.

    There was such a lighter in the U D Archive, but it was not Old Joe. I don't recall the brand for sure but It may have been Jim Beam. I believe the lighter came to the archive from a miniature collection purchased by the archive from a local collector.

    Re: Old Joe Lighter

    I have an Ancient Age 1 pint bottle with a lighter on top. I filled it with fluid once and it still lit. I just wasn't sure how wise it was to have a lighter on top of a full bottle of whiskey. Open flame + flammable liquid =

    Some people see the glass as half empty, others half full,I prefer to drink straight from the bottle
