Evans Saxony Hotel Lighter

This gold Evans lighter is emblazoned with the name of The Saxony Hotel, Miami Beach, and comes complete with its original box. Though the box shows signs of age, the interior and, best of all, the lighter, are in excellent condition. The lighter stands 6.2 cm tall, by 3.5 cm wide. Although an exact date of manufacture can still not be determined, this piece is an estimated 60 years old, and in fabulous shape considering its age.
The Saxony Hotel, at 3201 Collins Avenue Miami Beach, was completed in 1948, and was one of the first luxury resorts on Miami Beach. The Saxony was famous for its luxurious rooms, complementary meals, restaurants and exceptional views of South Beach, and was the first air-conditioned hotel on Miami Beach. It is easy to see how and elegant lighter like this Evans would be affiliated with a resort the caliber of Saxony.
