Iím posting a photos of a very interesting Tiffany silver cigar lighter in the form of an Aladinís lamp. The only other reference to it that I can find is in the Tiffany section of .925-1000.com web site where they call it a Pompeian Cigar Lamp:


As I donít have a copy of Charles and Mary Carpenter's book "Tiffany Silver" a friend looked through it for me and couldnít find it mentioned in that book.
It has nice early pattern number, 989 and it is further engraved with the initials D.S.A. and the date 1867.

If any Tiffany silver experts have any information about this piece, I would surely appreciate your time in sharing it with me. My specific questions would be, what date range is appropriate for this pieceÖis this a rarity or a more common piece, where can I find documentation about it, do the engraved initials and date ring any bells, approximate value, etc?

Many thanks in advance.

If you miss a piece, there is always more out there.
