The Art Deco movement that blossomed in the United States during the Roaring Twenties was the perfect architectural complement to the bold and lavish era. The inventor of the Zippo Windproof Lighter, George G. Blaisdell, was heavily influenced by Art Deco when he created the Zippo lighter and designed the earliest decorated lighters with clean, elegant geometric patterns that added another layer of sophistication to the shiny chrome finish.
The 2021 Collectible of the Year pays homage to the beauty and splendor of Art Deco by combining multiple cutting-edge processes, classic elements, and a sparkling embellishment available exclusively for each of the three regions.
The High Polish Black Classic Windproof Lighter is transformed into an Art Deco masterpiece by 360° Laser Engraving and selective gold plating. The crown jewel of each lighter is the kite-shaped crystal emblem, chosen exclusively for the each version of the collectible. The lighters are consecutively numbered and feature the special bottom stamp that denotes them as a Zippo Collectible.
