Pierre Cardin Lighter

This black and gold Pierre Cardin lighter is complete with plastic case and original documentation. It stands 8.0 cm tall, 2.8 cm wide, and is an ultra slim 0.7 cm thick. Although an exact date of manufacture can still not be obtained, this piece is an estimated 35 years old, and in immaculate condition.
Pierre Cardin, a designer known for his avant-garde style and his Space Age designs, prefered geometric shapes and motifs, often ignoring the female form. Best known for his clothes, he branched out into various feilds including working with American Motors Corporation on automotive interiors, and, as this acquisition demonstrates, lighters. With a total cost of $35.30 CAD, owning a peice of design history has never been more afforadable.
