Exhibit : Döbereiner Lighters

I collect objects and information related to specific areas of interest, where innovation in fire making is concerned. After fifty years being engaged with the subject, in a very broad sense, my focus has settled on innovations created during the age of enlightenment, and until the beginning of the twentieth century.

Some of my lighters


My collection has evolved as knowledge and opportunities emerged. Information and new examples have connected enough evidence to say that a better understanding of the industry that developed and what impacts took place, as result. With that, my concentration on these interesting lighters has produced the gathering I have included in my Exhibit.
